Plot – Tony Manero is 19, he has dark eyes and a Latin charm. He works in a store but he loves dancing whenever he can: for him, dancing is also a way to escape his family situation. His father is unemployed, his mother is a churchy woman and his brother is a priest who has lost his faith. This movie is based on an investigative report titled "Saturday Night Tribal Rites", but its success is set by the disco's atmosphere, by the famous Travolta's white dress and by Bee Gees' music.
