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.

A nice family film about discrimination
12 May 2005 | by (South Dakota) – See all my reviews

This is one of the Feature Films for Families, which are usually worth watching with your family. The setting is a sugar beet farm in Idaho. The farmer has three daughters, who are expected to hoe sugar beets upon reaching the age of twelve if they want any help with financing their college education. The youngest daughter, Ira, doesn't have to hoe beets yet, and she can run around doing what she wants. The farmer hires transient Mexican farm laborers to hoe sugar beets too. The girl makes friends with a young transient boy. It seems some teenage boys from town pick on the transient Mexicans. One rich boy in particular has a Buick convertible. Ira tells this story to her own daughter after she has grown up.
