Bread & Roses
The things I do for the men in my life...
A young Mexican woman is smuggled into the US, and stays with her sister's family. She gets a job as an office cleaner, where she meets two very different men: one is a union activist, the other a cleaner who wants to be a lawyer. We follow her progress as she is torn between the two, while at the same time becoming involved in industrial action at her workplace. The film also provides social commentary on the hardships faced by illegal aliens, as well as a brief glimpse at the hidden agenda of the trade union movement.
