When Jim White, a high school football coach lost his job, following an incident with a student; he packed his bags and moved his wife and two kids to the South Central Valley and a small town of McFarland. A small town of around 6,500 in 1987; McFarland is mostly hispanic and is a community of Mexican, migrant workers who their local crops, that eventually fill our grocery stores. Currently, McFarland, California hasn’t changed much since the White’s moved in; except the high school cross-country team. The latest feel-good sports movie from Disney, McFarland, USA isn’t your typical story of impoverished outcasts that slay the monster of an opponent who is bigger, stronger and better than them in every way. It’s a bit different, in how the biggest obstacle to overcome, isn’t the opponent, it’s yourself.
