Chen is caught in the middle of the cultural conflict raging between his Russian-born mother and his Israeli father.  One day he stumbles on a ballroom dance class for young people and sees Natalie, a stunning young Russian girl with whom he immediately falls in love.  His interest in Natalie results in   his taking ballroom dancing classes and ultimately bridging the cultural divide in his own family - with the help of the Cha-cha-cha and the Tango.

Chen's teachers are former world champions from Russia who never quite fulfilled their potential and who find themselves battling their own demons while training their young students.
