"Walkout" is a 2006 Home Box Office film based on a true story of the 1968 East L.A. walkouts. It premiered March 18, 2006 on HBO.


Student activist and Mexican-American Paula Crisostomo (played by Alexa Vega), tired of being treated unequally, decides to take action and stage a walkout at five East Los Angeles high schools in 1968 to protest educational conditions and complain of anti-Mexican educational bias along with some 10,000 students.
