    • Synopsis
    • Christa, a young German nurse works in a famous pharmaceutical laboratory and harbors a dream of becoming a world class Latin dancer.
      She meets Hector, a gorgeous Hispanic-American dancer, who promises her success. But Hector’s promises are shallow and merely a means to an end. He is not interested in Christa but in the revolutionary erectile dysfunction drug, Super V that is being developed in the lab where Christa works.
      Believing Hectors promises and the pursuance of her Broadway dance dream intersects and drives Christa to leave her home in Germany for America. Once in New York City, Christa slowly comes to the realization that Hector might have deceived her, she can’t find him anywhere. Christa is undaunted; she discovers a truer and stronger cause, the art and joy of dance. She finds a new dancing partner in her roommate, Colon, an ex-cop who shares her passion for dance. Together they struggle to improve their craft. Colon helps Christa become a freer dance with a real Latin flavor; she in turn gives him style and finesse. A sweet and secret romance is born out of their plutonic relationship.
      The Broadway Dance Competition is now within sight, Hector resurfaces in Christa's life. He lures Christa back to dance with him with his slick illusions of fame and fortune. But Christa accidentally, discovers how Hector used her to get the pharmaceuticals that he is now selling bootleg.
      Will Christa turn a blind eye to Hectors dealings and trade the truth for her moment of fame? Or will she take a chance on her roommate Colon and pursue a meaningful love relationship, even if it means losing the competition?
