Willie's brown beret has been stored away in a chest in his welding shop along with a ton of memories from the "Chicano Power" movement of the 60s-70s. When his pals come by after the funeral of their friend Frankie, Willie opens the chest and past comes tumbling out. Along with Willie, Louie, a burnt-out math teacher, Jojo, a sell-out television writer, and Rude Boy, a Vietnam veteran, courageously confront the dichotomy between the youthful anger and radicalism sparked during their time as one of the Brown Berets and their new found adult responsibilities and conformism.
