Spare Parts (2016)

My youngest son got this out of the library, and my spouse and I were intrigued.  The plot focuses on the very real situation for undocumented students in high school and the very limited options they have for advancement.  An out of work engineer takes a substitute teaching job at a high school and is assigned to be the faculty advisor for the Robotics Club. His expectation is that there will be exactly zero kids interested in that but it turns out that he is wrong. One kid sees it as a way out of his undocumented situation and they work to build an underwater robot to compete in a national contest.  The movie has some excellent acting, the script is interesting, and it is a feel good story.  Very enjoyable.
