This is one of Sylvester Stallone's most well developed and acted role of his early career. Stallone plays a character named Johnny Kovak which ought as well be Jimmy Hoffa.
Kovak is a character who starts as a small time worker but after feeling him and his fellow co-workers are getting the shaft by management sets out to improve their working conditions. Soon he is working for the F.I.S.T.(Federal Interstates Truckers) union. As the years go by he's worked his way up to being the head of the union.
The movie is unofficially basically the rise and fall of Jimmy Hoffa, I think it's a much better done movie then the movie Hoffa with Jack Nicholson in the title role.
