Dreaming of saving up enough money to return to his island and restore his late father's business in the Dominican Republic, bright-eyed Usnavi runs a bodega in the lively neighbourhood of Washington Heights, Manhattan, selling the best coffee in town. Until then, Usnavi vies for beautiful beautician Vanessa's attention, as his childhood friends, Benny and Nina, nurture dreams of their own, intent on helping the immigrant community of Washington Heights. But, these streets are made of music, and as the temperature rises, nothing can stand in the way of youthful, sun-kissed optimism. After all, there is no place like home.
