1987. A 13-year-old natural born dancer with fire in his heels and snakes in his hips is working himself up to sweep the floor at the UK Junior Salsa Championships. But then… a freakish bullying incident on the mean streets of London robs him of his confidence, and our young hero finds his life diverted down a very different path.

So it is that 26 years later, an adult Bruce Garrett (Nick Frost), finds himself out-of-shape and unloved – trapped in a downward spiral of self-pity. It takes Julia (Rashida Jones), his smart, funny, gorgeous new American boss, to shake him from his emotional stupor and force him to re-examine his passionless existence. But she’s out of his league with her perfect smile and perfect life.  Luckily for Bruce, Julia also has a secret passion… salsa dancing.

Then there’s Drew (Chris O’Dowd), his alpha-male colleague and horny king-monkey of the office. With Drew making no secret of his desire to get (his words) “all up inside Julia”, Bruce is forced into action and brought face-to-face with the darkest and most powerful of his inner demons. 

Somehow, and with a lot of handholding from loyal sister Sam (Olivia Colman), his old mentor Ron (Ian McShane) and crazy new amateur salsa pal Bejan (Novak) Bruce must learn to unshackle his dancing beast, regain his long lost fury and claim the love of his life… and he’s going to do it all On The Dance Floor…
