Max Washington has just been released from prison after serving time for burglary. He returns to his old hangout, a hoofer club. (Tap dancer club). His old girl friend, Amy, who still works at the club as a Tap instructor, is less than thrilled to see him. Her father, Little Mo, is happy to see him, because he has plans for a show involving Max. In addition, Max's old partners in crime have another job they want him to do. Written by
