Boys State follows the lives of teenage boys participating in Boys State, a program where selected students from all around the nation build a representative government. They involve themselves in alliances, political parties, campaigns, mock elections and legislatures as they learn how the political process works. One of the films subjects, Steven Garza, a student from Mayde Creek High School in Katy, Texas, displays perseverance and heroism in sticking to his progressive beliefs running for a governor position even though the conclave was dominated by his white, conservative peers.
