Cuban Fury

1987: 13-year-old Bruce Garrett, a natural born salsa dancer with fire in his heels and the world at his feet, is perfectly poised to clinch the title at the UK Junior Salsa Championships. But then a freakish bullying incident on the mean streets of London robs him of his sequins and his confidence, and our young hero finds his life diverted down a very different path.

So it is that 25 years later, an adult Bruce Garrett, finds himself out-of-shape, unloved and emotionally inert - trapped in a downward spiral of self pity. It takes Julia, his smart, funny, gorgeous new American boss, to force him to confront the demons of his past and re-examine his passionless existence. Bruce fears it's an impossible challenge - she's way out of his league and long held self doubts prove tricky to shed. Luckily for him, Julia also has a secret passion: salsa dancing. Maybe, just maybe, this is his way in...
