and "Proof of Life"


Synopsis - "Save the Last Dance"
When Chenille (Kerry Washington) takes Sara (Julia Stiles) to Steppes, the neighborhood hang, she gets her first taste of hip-hop - and Derek's (Sean Patrick Thomas) the one to show her the moves. When they discover they share a passion for dance, they discover that there's something deeper going on - a passion for each other. But they soon find out the hard way that they must not only overcome their own differences, but the resentment and bad blood of their friends and family.
