The story of 'In the Heights' presents a very varied group of people that have one thing in common: all of them live in the same neighborhood, Washington Heights, at the north part of Manhattan. Usnavi is a small bodega owner. Sometimes he takes care of an old Cuban woman, but he is very well-known for flirting with one of the girls who works in the beauty salon in the neighborhood. Usnavi dreams about winning the lottery and going far away, specifically, to the Dominican Republic. Nina, one of the childhood friends of Usnavi, comes back to the neighborhood after spending one year at the university. Despite the joy of her meeting with her parents, this will not stay longer because Nina tells them that she has dropped college. This will make her father to feel guilty about not being able to pay it after the loss of her scholarship.
