The film portrays the struggle of students that decided to take a stand against injustices such as being forbidden from speaking Spanish in class or from using the restrooms during lunchtime. An important element of this movement was the fact that students pointed at the deficiencies of the educational system including the fact that Mexican American history and culture was absent from the curriculum and there was a lack of administrators of Mexican descent in schools (schools with a majority Mexican American student body, among many other things.
