Dame la mano is a sparkling documentary that sketches a beautiful portrait of the dance, music and lifestyle of the Cuban community in New Jersey. Every Sunday night, the La Esquina Habanera restaurant is transformed into a dance club where exiled Cubans living in the New York City area gather to dance to the most sensual of all Cuban music: the Rumba. The films characters a wild lot of vibrant, passionate immigrants tell Honigmanns camera their tales of exile or imprisonment, of loved ones left behind, and share their homesickness for Cuba with poignant charm. Rafaella, Tony, Leonardo, David and Karim demonstrate their love for the dance and explain how the rumba helps them retain their zest for life in a country very different from their homeland.
