In the Heights

In the Heights tells the stories of myriad characters in Washington Heights, New York who all have struggles of their own living in the city. Usnavi, a bodega owner, dreams of one day returning to his roots in the Dominican Republic.

He’s been raised with his younger cousin Sunny by Abuela Claudia. Vanessa, Usnavi’s childhood friend and love interest, dreams of escaping the Heights to create a better life on her own. Her friend, Nina, has just returned from her first year at Stanford with some troubling news of her own.

Unable to keep her grades up while juggling two jobs, she’s lost her scholarship and has to leave the university, much to her parents’ dismay. She finds comfort in her friend Benny who works at her father’s taxi service. The two dance around their feelings for each other as they spend more and more time together in the Heights.

Usnavi however, has decided to finally ask out Vanessa. Tensions begin to rise when Nina’s father reveals he’s sold his taxi service to pay for her tuition. Nina and Benny, furious with his decision, escape to a club with Usnavi and Vanessa who are having troubles of their own. When the lights go out on Washington Heights the characters not only have to find each other, but have to find themselves and their place in the Heights.
