Abstract:

On June 23, 1999, after a quarter century of struggle, textile workers in Kannapolis, North Carolina won the single largest industrial union victory in the history of the South, a region long known as a bastion of anti-union sentiment. This film traces the story of that epic and often bitter struggle, and examines the efforts of workers to cope with a rapidly changing social and economic climate. Told primarily through the voices of those active in the numerous attempts to organize the union, the film offers an intimate and compelling portrait of American workers as they face the myriad challenges of the post-industrial age.
