This bio-pic outlines the thoughts and actions of a Mexican-American leader who fought for equal rights during a difficult time. Many people believe his efforts to be heroic--others openly question the stories of his efforts. Either way, this is his story which will be viewed subjectively depending on how much any given individual cares.
