Based on Joshua Davis' Wired magazine story. The film is based on a true David & Goliath story about four undocumented Mexican – American teenagers from Phoenix who form a robotics team. From Lionsgate and Pantelion Films, "Spare Parts" is a true life story about four Hispanic high school students who form a robotics club under the leadership of their school's newest teacher, Fredi (George Lopez). With no experience, $800, used car parts and a dream, this rag tag team goes up against the country's reigning robotics champion, MIT. On their journey, they learn not only how to build a robot- they learn to build a bond that will last a lifetime.
