Home to the nation’s largest Latino immigrant population, East Los Angeles sits squarely in the crossfire of debate about American identity. Yet, every November, this community comes together for a distinctly American event, drawing 25,000 proud locals to one of the country’s fiercest high school football rivalry games: The East LA Classic. The All-Americans follows four students seeking glory on the field while grappling with personal obstacles and striving to make sense of their place in today’s America.
"Billy McMillin's rousing The All-Americans serves as a timely take on finding one's identity both on and off the field." (Michael Rechtshaffen, Los Angeles Times)
