A decade of union democracy and collective bargaining

Part I depicts the gritty realities of a seven-week workers' strike at a small Indiana chain manufacturing plant. Volatile union meetings and tension-filled interactions on the picket line provide an insider view of the stresses and conflicts inherent in democratic union.

In Part II, the filmmakers return to the Taylor Chain plant ten years later, in the middle of a recession, to capture the collective bargaining process. Amid anti-union legislation, global competition, and increasing pressure on both sides, labor and management must work together - against great odds - to save the plant.
