The film tells the story of Touch, a young man who loves dance. One day, he possessed a pair of sneakers that had the super power created by lightning. They made him a fiery dancer overnight.



The film is based on the fame and popularity of Touch Na Takuathung, a pop dance star of RS Promotion in 1990s. Considered as Prachya Pinkaew's debut film before becoming world famous with martial arts film Ong-Bak: Muay Thai Warrior in 2003.[1]

It is also the first film produced and distributed by RS Promotion (before the establishment of RS Film), and the debut of some performers, such as Boriboon Chanrueng, Watsana Phunphon and Jaturong Kolimart from the boyband Hijack.[1]

Its Thai title "Rawng tah laep plaep" is slang that probably means "flashing shoes".[2]
