Sergio Juarez (Eugenio Derbez – CODA) is the new teacher at a poor school in a Mexican border town. Ravaged by negligence, corruption and violence, neither the town nor the school offer many options for the lost youth. Frustrated by a general sense of apathy, Sergio turns to drastic methods to gain the students’ interest and help them realise their potential. Based on a true story, Radical is a moving, infectiously optimistic tale of hope and opportunity that won the audience Festival Favorite Award at Sundance.
