The Toronto Dressmakers’ Strike of 1931 brings young Jewish sisters Sophie and Rose together in a fight for better working conditions, decent wages, and for their union. They are faced with unexpected and sometimes violent barriers, and they quickly find that a strike is more than just a march. In the midst of anti-Semitism and the Great Depression, they come together to try to make a lasting change.
