Seguin is the story of Juan Seguin, an unsung hero of the Texas Wars for Independence and one of the Mexican defenders of the Alamo. Don Erasmo Seguin, along with Stephen Austin, brought the first Anglo settlers to help develop the Mexican state of Texas. His son Juan came into conflict with his father because he sympathized with both Mexico and the American colonists' struggles for possession of Texas.

As a Mexican, Seguin fought at the Alamo and was rejected by Mexican nationals as a traitor. By the Anglo settlers, he was rejected since he was of Mexican decent. Seguin was filmed in 16mm on a 21-day shooting schedule at a cost of $500,000 in Bracketville, Texas, on the sets John Wayne used to film The Alamo(1960).
