Storyline

Based on a true story, student activist and Mexican-American Paula Crisostomo (Vega), tired of being treated unequally, decides to take action and stage a walkout at five East Los Angeles high schools in 1968, to protest educational conditions and complain of anti-Mexican educational bias along with some 10,000 students. Paula Crisostomo (now Romo) is not Mexican- American--she is Filipina-American. She and her husband, then boyfriend were roommates of mine in college. We are very good friends and I see her often.

wonderful
23 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

i loved this movie it gave me real inspiration and hope for our future as indigenous people of this land.. remember there was no border before.. i am Native American but we are the same in my eyes... we share a lot of the same struggles and also strengths.. much love and respect for the activists and actors acting there parts... especially Efren Ramirez, Micheal Pena, and Alexa Vega. i loved the part when her dad was telling her that the reason that people don't want to fight chicanos is because they don't give up.. that was so cool.. i am not afraid to stick up for what i believe.. and i believe the same bout native people.. we never give up... AIM (American Indian Movement) look at their success.. peace i'm out
