Washington Heights synopsis

In New York City's Washington Heights neighborhood, Carlos (Manny Perez) is a comic book artist who dreams of making it big downtown and leaving his old stomping grounds behind. Already struggling to make an impact on the scene, Carlos' plans are further delayed after his father, Eddie (Tomas Milian), the owner of a bodega, is shot in a robbery attempt. Forced to take over the business while his father recovers, Carlos must now become involved in the community he so desperately wants to escape.
