Slavik is a former World Champion in Latin American Dance. He is about to make his final comeback as a professional dancer with his partner and lover Anna. Slavik is addicted to the limelight and the dance. His body, however, is causing him aches and pains and his flaring temper puts his relationship with Anna at stake.
