An aging Latino farmer eking out a living on his California farm discovers that the groundwater he pumps up to irrigate his crops is being polluted by a giant oil company. With his crops, farm and livelihood now threatened, the grower has little choice but to go up against a powerful corporate polluter with a lot of money and an army of lawyers. A strong background displaying the unfair state of the legal system and the racial issues that arise for Latino farmers makes for a dramatic plot that sheds light on timely social problems, including environmental concerns.
