    • Synopsis
    • Dean wants to set up his multi-media ballet company. But his life is about to change. When set upon by a street gang expecting him to settle his brother's criminal debts, Dean narrowly escapes by spectacularly leaping over a high wired fence. The impossible leap is caught on CCTV and attracts the attention of the media. A group of old time thieves are especially interested in tracing Dean believing his jumping skills could help them commit the perfect art heist. They track him down but the police are already onto the crooks. Dean is picked up by Chief Inspector Christina Marshall's team who want him to work with the gang and act as an informant, despite the risk to his life. Dean's relationship with his girlfriend Charlotte and fellow dancers becomes threatened as the pressure mounts. He is forced to keep silent about the events and try to carry on as normal, building his dance company dream in public by day, while satisfying the demands of the police and the thieves, in secret, at night.
