The local person from each country interacts with the main character and is seen to shake hands or agree to be a part of something exciting. In the finale of the show, all the local people from the different countries come together. They are seen working as a team and creating the final images and acrobatic tableaus of the show. Together they create the word UNITE and take their final positions around a digital world globe.
Connect is an inspiring show about us all coming together and working as a team towards a united goal. It's set to an uplifting soundtrack with carefully chosen individual pieces of music which represents each country well.
