Summary :

Linda, a 50 year old widow, goes to an office party and ends up dancing with a guy who does push dancing, a cousin to slam dancing. She is humiliated since she knows nothing about this kind of dancing and ends up falling down, the guy pulls her back up and keeps dancing. This sort of dancing should only be done with people who have practiced it and know what they're doing. She decides to tell the jerk off, so that he doesn't end up hurting the next woman he dances with. He, however, is hard to find, so she ends up playing detective. Everyone tells her to forget him, there's nothing she can do about it anyway. Or is there?
