A documentary on the Mexican American civil rights movement. The film tells the story of one key injustice - the refusal, by a small-town funeral home in Texas after World War II, to care for a dead soldier's body "because the whites wouldn't like it" - and shows how the Incident sparked outrage nationwide, and contributed to the Voting Rights Act of 1965.
