Inspired by true events, The Moment of Truth finds a
Texan art student facing down life, death, love, and
glory in the bullfighting rings of 1950s Mexico.
Texan art student Kathleen Boyd has been dreaming about
becoming a matador since her beloved father took her to
the bullfighting ring when she was just a child. Now a
young woman, her disapproving fiancé and her practical-
minded mother see her dream only as a foolish flight of
fancy. Nevertheless, Kathleen relocates to Mexico and
finds herself under the instruction of Fermin, a retired
matador who is intent on asserting his dominance in their
partnership. Though taking on a female apprentice is
unheard of, Fermin sees Kathleen’s undeniable talent and
promises that she’ll one day perform at the prestigious
Plaza Mexico bullring.
While Kathleen struggles to perform alongside the
unwelcoming men of Mexico’s bullfighting scene, she is
befriended by Julio, better known as El Cabrito—The Kid.
Much to Fermin’s displeasure, not only does Julio show
Kathleen techniques that defy his strict instruction, but
a forbidden romance quickly ignites between them.
As time passes, Kathleen’s confidence in her ability
increases—though so too do her suspicions of Fermin’s
intentions. She has become a sensation, selling out
arenas as La Diosa Tejana, the Texan Goddess. But while
Fermin gets rich, Kathleen’s pay remains pitiful and her
instructor’s control over her life remains absolute. Will
she always be a vehicle for another person’s success? Or
will she finally face her own moment of truth and seize
the success that she has worked toward for so long, in a
world that has always belonged to men?
