The Pushouts

Victor Rios, a Mexican immigrant and affiliated with a gang as a teen, radically changed his life with the help of his mentor Martin Flores. The film weaves together 20-year-old archival footage of the two with contemporary footage of them today, as they work together to change the lives of other students on the margins of failure.
