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?

It’s the storytellers that preserve a nation’s history. But what happens when some stories are silenced? The I Am America series features fictional stories based on important historical events from people whose voices have been under represented, lost, or forgotten over time.
