Storyline

Ida and her family live on a beet farm in 1965. She is almost 12, that means she has only one last summer until she has to work with her older sisters on the farm. Due to the increased acreage of the farm this year, Ida's father hires a group of Mexican immigrants to help out with the farm. Among them is Oscar, a boy close to Ida's age. They spend the summer together, teaching each other many lessons along the way while trying to overcome the prejudice that Oscar and his family experiences from the rest of the town.

Good film for children, promotes cultural awareness
18 October 1998 | by (Arizona USA) – See all my reviews

Our family enjoys this film. It has an interesting plot and story-line. It presents a good message in understanding people from another culture.

Especially important to us was the fact that any violence was implied and not emphasized. We wish there were more movies like that.
