The film is based on the true story in 1955, of five young high school Mexican-American who are sought after golf caddies at a country club in their hometown Del Rio, Texas, but are faced with discrimination and racism among local bigots at their own game.
In 1956, JB Pena (Jay Hernandez) and his wife moved to the small town of Del Rio, Texas, partly for a job as a school superintendent, but mostly to fulfill JB’s dream of joining the prestigious, all-white Del Rio Country Club.  So when JB is rejected on the basis of his skin color, he is devastated.  But his world soon collides with a group of young latino golf caddies who work at the country club, and JB is inspired by the handmade course the boys built in the country to teach themselves golf.  With little experience and even fewer resources, JB convinces the boys to start their own high school golf team, starting them all on a journey where they learn that it takes more than just golf skills to make history.
The movie opens this weekend (April 12), in more than a hundred theatres, nationwide.
