Maria del Carmen Huerta lives a respectable middle-class life in Colombia. Then she misses class one day, and discovers she cannot return to her ordinary existence but must pursue her passion for dancing across the city. We follow her from rumbas in car parks and shantytowns to the legendary last concert of the 'King of Salsa', Richie Ray, as she gives in to every desire she has - however dark.
