Sheffield. In the late 1980s, the steel industry closed down, the heart was torn out of the city. Ten years later, Glen the Karaoke King steals cars, Wayne, a bar owner, spots Sarah and tries to
turn her into the star as “the Dirty Dancer”, and Paul, an ex-boxer, starts out on an acting career. One night at the Fountain bar, Glen, Wayne, Paul and Sarah meet up together.
