Plot Summary

  • Un gruppo di addetti alle pulizie di un grattacielo di Los Angeles è continuamente vessato e solo l'intervento di un giovane e combattivo sindacalista del movimento Justice for Janitors riuscirà a ridare fiducia e rispetto ai lavoratori. PANE E ROSE era, appunto, la richiesta delle lavoratrici in lotta negli USA nel 1911.

  • Maya is a quick-witted young woman who comes over the Mexican border without papers and makes her way to the LA home of her older sister Rosa. Rosa gets Maya a job as a janitor: a non-union janitorial service has the contract, the foul-mouthed supervisor can fire workers on a whim, and the service-workers' union has assigned organizer Sam Shapiro to bring its "justice for janitors" campaign to the building. Sam finds Maya a willing listener, she's also attracted to him. Rosa resists, she has an ailing husband to consider. The workers try for public support; management intimidates workers to divide and conquer. Rosa and Maya as well as workers and management may be set to collide.
