Based on true events, the film chronicles the actions of civil rights leader and labour organizer César Chavez (Peña) and his efforts to secure a living wage for farm workers. Chavez witnesses the poor working conditions of braceros - contract labourers from Mexico, temporarily permitted to live and work in the United States in agriculture - and the racism and brutality suffered at the hands of their employers. Torn between his family duties and fight for social justice, Chavez embraces non-violence as he strives to bring dignity and justice to others.
