Synopsis

Against Goliath is a tale of girls finding their voices, and raises crucial questions about gender (race and class) bias in America today. Like national politics, high school debate is male dominated—more males than females debate, reach finals, and win. The film follows the Newton South High School Public Forum Debate team as they learn to become better debaters and confront bias head on. In this intensely competitive, demanding extracurricular activity, the novices, as well as the rest of the team, develop and refine their speaking and research skills, build their confidence, and debate in regional and national tournaments, while struggling with how to present themselves in a world dominated by boys. Most of the debaters are first generation Americans, with native languages like Russian, Hebrew, Spanish, Vietnamese, Mandarin, Hindi, Urdu or Ukrainian, who will likely become the country's next leaders— doctors, lawyers, engineers, teachers and politicians.
