This film gives visibility to the power of organizing as a way to improve urban public schools. Across the US, graduation rates in most urban districts still remain between 50 and 60 percent. This documentary is about people who refuse to accept the system's failures, and are working for change. Their spirit, passion and commitment shows that when organizers, parents, youth and educators work together, they are successful. It brings together stories of people facing different challenges, but share similar goals. Included: a story from Oakland, CA, which shows how it is possible for community members, educators, and policy makers to come together to transform their School District.
