Texas 1836, crushed from the outside by Mexican armadas and attacked from within by ferocious Comanche tribes - no one was safe. But this was a time of bravery, a time to die for what you believed in and a time to stand tall against the cruel rule of the Mexican General Santa Anna (Olivier Martinez). The heroic General Sam Houston (Bill Paxton), the rag-tag Rangers and the legendary "Yellow Rose of Texas" lead this story of the human will to win against insurmountable odds. At the end, the Texas flag stood tall and victorious, claiming a piece of history for all eternity. This is a story of the human spirit rising in the face of insurmountable odds and claiming a piece of history for themselves. There are times in the building of civilizations that men must stand and be counted, or fall and be forgotten. Texas is Rising.
