Based on a true story, "Stand and Deliver" is an inspirational tale of a dedicated teacher who rescues a group of poor Latino students from potential delinquency by turning them into math whizzes. Using humor, imagination and whatever other means necessary, Jaime Escalante gets his students at a tough East Los Angeles high school so excited by learning that they are able to pass advance placement tests in calculus with flying colors. Their scores are so spectacular, in fact, that the testing board decides the students have cheated and forces them to prove their new-found knowledge by retaking the test.

Movie Quotes:

"Tough guys don't do math, tough guys deep-fry chicken for a living." -- Jaime Escalante (Edward James Olmos) to his high school math class

"There are some people in this world who assume you know less than you do because of your name and your complexion, but math is a great equalizer." -- Jaime Escalante (Edward James Olmos) to his high school math class

Independently produced, "Stand and Deliver" was picked up for distribution by Warner Brothers for an estimated $5 million.
