McFarland USA is based off a true story about a group of immigrant kids in California who have been working and picking in the fields since they were 10. One day a football coach gets fired for harassing his players (It wasn’t on purpose.) so he packs up his family and moves to McFarland where he gets a job as the co-football coach and Life Science teacher. On his first day he gets fired from football coach so he starts up a Cross Country team and finds 7 kids……. Well you need to watch the rest.
