Join Eduardo Chavez, grandson to civil rights activist Cesar Chavez, as his documentary embarks on a journey to connect with his grandfathers legacy. He begins work as a farm-worker, picking grapes in the field, like his father and grandfather before him, and learns first hand the kind of work that goes into putting fruits and vegetables on peoples plates. Through his personal journey, as he reconnects with his families legacy, we learn about Ceasar Chavez's plight to create equality for farm-workers as well as the current conditions that they face in the fields and back at home. There will be a Q&A with Eduardo Chavez following the documentary showing.
