Budding reporter Tala Mendoza thinks life in 1965 Delano, California, is boring. But that's before her father and other members of the local Filipino grape workers' union vote to strike. While the strike brings Filipino and Mexican farmworkers together, it threatens to tear Tala and her best friend, Jasmine, apart. Can Tala and Jasmine's relationship withstand the strain and length of the Delano Grape Strike?
