Usnavi 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, who works at the beauty salon, and looking after Abuela Claudia, the elderly Cuban lady living next door who raised him. One day, Usnavi’s childhood friend Nina comes back from college with a secret, and Abuela Claudia wins the lottery. (Jon M. Chu, 2021, PG-13, 142 min.)
