Synopsis by Jinko Labitag
Usnavi (Anthony Ramos) is a bodega owner who longs to go back to his native Dominican Republic. In the meantime, he spends his time in a small neighborhood in Washington Heights pining after Vanessa (Melissa Barrera), a beautiful lady working at the beauty salon and looking after Abuela Claudia (Olga Merediz), the elderly Cuban lady living next door who raised him, among many others. One day, Usnavi’s childhood friend Nina (Leslie Grace) comes back from college with a secret, and Abuela Claudia wins the lottery. Directed by Jon M. Chu.
