It's a little rough around the edges...always a problem when you can see the direction!

But, there is a feature-length story in here...it just needs work!

And then...there's the dancing!

The(ir) Blurb...

Cuban Heel Shoes tells the story of two teenage boys in a marginal neighborhood of Madrid, in a place hostile to each of their desires. With serious family problems, and surrounded by an aggressive, macho, homophobic environment, they must lead a double life to hide their love relationship and their passion for flamenco dance.
