Based on true events, Miss Lebron examines the controversial life of Puerto Rican Nationalist Lolita Lebron, a wife and mother in the 1950's who grew from a former beauty queen into one of the most feared and respected martyrs for Puerto Rican independence. Miss Lebron offers a scolding look at the relationship between the United States and Puerto Rico while detailing the life and loves of a woman who spent years struggling for Puerto Rico's independence as well as her own.
