Storyline

Luz Garcia, a high school student in a forgotten Texas town, wants something different than the options awaiting her after graduation. She's earned a ticket out with admission to the University of Texas at Austin, but she can't afford to go. Her one shot is a scholarship for winning the State Powerlifting Championship. It's all or nothing for Luz...until nothing stares her in the face. Written by Daniel Meisel

Excellent film!
15 March 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Excellent film! I think the Mexican-American community would identify with and appreciate the film (for the story really is about them), but feel that the film's themes about perseverance, confidence building, and empowerment (particularly for young women) are universal, and the director/writer made particular effort to include elements - like non-ethnic-specific score and songs - to help viewers beyond the Mexican-American community find themselves in this story.

The young woman in the lead role does an amazing job, as do all the actors.

I look forward to seeing more wonderful films from Kapok Pictures.
