What is Magic Mike’s Last Dance about?

Eight years after his last big performance as a male stripper, and after a business deal that left him broke, Mike Lane is living a quieter life, working as a bartender in Florida. There he meets a wealthy socialite, played by Hayek, who lures him to London for one final, big performance.

When he arrives in the Big Smoke, Mike learns that she has an agenda of her own - he meets a team of new dancers he’ll have to train up in order to pull it off.
