Maya Entertainment | Release Date: July 29, 2011
Summary: In a small Texas town, there aren't many career options for young people besides oil rigs, the military, or fast food restaurants. Luz Garcia, a fiery high school athlete, is determined to forge a different future: she's gained admission to the University of Texas at Austin. The problem is she can't afford to go. With her one shot at a scholarship riding on the state power lifting championship, she sees no choice but to bend the rules to ensure her victory. Although Luz's rashness and frustration land her in increasingly hotter water, they also fuel her with courage and empowerment. (Maya Entertainment)
