Cuban Heel Shoes
by Julio Mas Alcaraz
Paco and Jose are two teenage boys living in a marginal neighbourhood of Madrid, a place hostile to each of their dreams. With serious family problems, and surrounded by an aggressive, macho, homophobic environment, they must lead a double life to hide the beginning of a love relationship and their passion for flamenco dance.
Julio was born in Spain. He holds a BA in Economic and Business Science, a MBA and a MA in Arts. He has more than ten years experience in different management positions at several multinational companies.
