Goldens Are Here

Inspired by true events surrounding an historic Florida citrus season and the civil rights struggle, Goldens Are Here offers a glimpse of the sea changes occurring in Florida and the nation in the 1960s through the prism of one family’s negotiations for the land, with their neighbors, and with each other.
