Rumiñawi uses the strength of his ancestors to overcome his obstacles when all is lost.

Rumiñahui is your average New York City teenager with a bright future ahead. He volunteers at the local Ecuadorian Culture Center in Queens and leads the youth group. He's a role model older brother and gets along with his divorced parents too. But Rumi's world comes crashing down when he's caught in a lie that changes his life. With his future now uncertain, he turns to the strength of his Indigenous Andean ancestors to guide him and show him the truth. "Heritage" is a story about reclaiming your identity and coming of age in a world that doesn't want you to succeed.
