Lola has no intention of accepting when her boyfriend Dougie’s snobbish mother offers her £10,000 to break up with him. Then she discovers a secret that makes her think again.

Ten years later, though, when Lola meets Dougie again, her feelings for him are as strong as ever. But she broke Dougie’s heart and he’s about to discover that she was paid to do it. She can never tell him the truth, so can she get him back? Well, Lola’s very attractive and very persuasive. But even she’s got her work cut out this time…

Out To Own On DVD 29th December 2008

Lauryn (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) is a young woman from a small town in Indiana who dreams of making it big as a dancer. Following the sudden death of her parents, she puts her ambitions on hold to help her brother Joel (John Reardon) keep the family’s auto-shop open. When her routine fails to impress at a long-awaited audition with the Chicago School of Music & Dance, Lauryn is dejected. Unable to face Joel and her spirit broken, she decides to stay in Chicago. She moves in with a dancer friend of hers who manages to get her a bookkeeping job in a local burlesque club. One night when the club is closed, Lauryn turns on the music and begins to dance. Alone and uninhibited, she at last feels free. However, it turns out that stumbling across the scene accidentally is the club’s DJ Russ (Riley Smith), himself no stranger to unfulfilled dreams. When one of the dancing girls leaves, Russ reveals to the club owner Brenda (Karen LeBlanc) that Lauryn has the moves. Much to her annoyance at first, it seems that Lauryn might just be thrust into the limelight after all….
