Movie Info

This romantic musical drama centers on handsome mambo dancer Miguel as he endeavors to get a U.S. visa and leave the Dominican Republic. After numerous rejections, the desperate Miguel stows away on a cargo plane to Puerto Rico where he teams up with an Italian, Carmello, who has come to find a son he has never met. The two masquerade as tourists and are able to slip past Immigration officers into New York where they find lodging in a ramshackle Bronx boardinghouse filled other illegal aliens. Miguel spends his days cruising Broadway in hopes of landing a dancing gig. But for a part-time job as a janitor at a dance academy owned by ex-dancer Susan, he has no luck. Susan finds herself attracted to Miguel and his intricate dance moves. Meanwhile he and Carmello continue their search for the boy.
