77 min.DK/Documentary

Lasse Eckstrøm Jensen is a show dancer and he loves the euphoria of the limelight. 15 years ago he was known as ‘Laze’, a tap-dancing popstar with hit song “Steppin Out”. Since then, his life has been a schizophrenic rollercoaster ride with dance, drugs, and prison time. Most recently, Lasse has been sentenced yet another trip behind bars, and he has decided that this will be the last time. Once and for all, Lasse wants to abandon his chaotic life where the dream of starting a family is slowly but surely being suffocated by death threats and the addiction to intensity.
