In Washington Heights, New York, three generations of Latino immigrants dream of succeeding in America while at the same time holding onto their culture and heritage. An uplifting and joyous celebration of life, In The Heights shows us a world that is at once exotic and different from our own but filled with the same dreams shared by us all.
