GREAT-BRITAIN  •  80′

a movie by KIM FLITCROFT

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.
