It is 1919. Stefan Sokolowski and his father Mike have fled Ukraine for the New World, where they struggle to earn enough to re-unite the family. Stefan is instantly smitten with the Jewish suffragette neighbour, Rebecca – but Rebecca’s brother Moishe and Mike oppose the would-be Romeo and Juliet romance. Meanwhile, soldiers home from the war are increasingly frustrated and angry at the lack of jobs. They violently threaten the city’s immigrants, including Emma, a refugee from racial persecution in Oklahoma. When a movement develops for workers to leave their jobs in protest, AJ Anderson, a wealthy lawyer, pits all against each other in a dramatic and inspirational final stand. Based in part on the famous Winnipeg Strike of 1919, the movie is an adaptation of Juno-award-winning composer Danny Schur & Rick Chafe‚Äôs hit musical Strike!
