Fusing the enthralling dance styles of Bollywood and Street, Break The Floorboards is a story about a teenage boy called Zain.

All he wants to do is dance, but a disapproving family, peer pressure, his two left feet and an impending fascist march are all getting in his way.

A chance meeting with Sophie, a young dancer, ignites hope but can he really escape the grim reality of his recession-hit hometown and turn his life into the glittering world of his Bollywood fantasies.

Winner of Best Live Event - Asian Media Awards 2013.
