Synopsis

The film recounts how a group of Mexican-born students from a beleaguered Arizona high school trumped opponents from the esteemed Massachusetts Institute of Technology in a 2004 underwater robotics contest sponsored by NASA and others. Interviews with the original challengers, the resourceful underdogs from Phoenix's Carl Hayden Community High School and the more seemingly privileged contestants from MIT, are effectively mixed with actual footage from the 2004 contest. The film also incorporates modest reenactments of the Arizona kids' preparation for the event and presents a cogent case why, for the good of the United States and its future, Congress should pass the Dream Act and other pending immigration reforms.
