A film version of the Broadway musical in which Usnavi, a sympathetic New York bodega owner, saves every penny every day as he imagines and sings about a better life.
In the Heights centers on a variety of characters living in the neighborhood of Washington Heights, on the northern tip of Manhattan.
At the center of the show is Usnavi, a bodega owner who looks after the aging Cuban lady next door, pines for the gorgeous girl working in the neighboring beauty salon and dreams of winning the lottery and escaping to the shores of his native Dominican Republic. Meanwhile, Nina, a childhood friend of Usnavi's, has returned to the neighborhood from her first year at college with surprising news for her parents, who have spent their life savings on building a better life for their daughter. Ultimately, Usnavi and the residents of the close-knit neighborhood get a dose of what it means to be home.
Cast: Stephanie Beatriz, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Jimmy Smits, Dascha Polanco, Anthony Ramos, Corey Hawkins, Melissa Barrera, Ariana Greenblatt
