Description

Every weekend, at rodeos from Illinois to California, teams of young Mexican-American women, escaramuzas charras, climb onto sidesaddles and weave their galloping horses through high-speed ballets, as heartstopping as the revolutionary-era skirmishes for which they're named. The documentary follows one such team, Las Azaleas, on their quest to represent California and the United States at the National Charro Championships in Mexico, where to be Charro is to be Mexican.
