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.

During the organization of the walkout, CSU Northridge is mentioned. In 1968 CSUN was still known as San Fernando Valley State College; it adopted its current name in 1972. See more »

I liked the movie that I just saw. this movie makes me wonder why I did not or have not ever heard about this part of L.A's history. I grow up in L.A county and did not read this story or learn about this story from my school or from any of my friends/neighbors. Thank you for making a movie that it seems everyone else will not. It is called history for a reason. PLease make more of this movies so that I as well as others might be able to understand more about the true history of Los Angelos.I wish that people would fill more comfortable talking about the hardships that people had to go through. please make more movies that show our history.Thank you for the history
