Storyline

Emma Goldman has just arrived in New York City to join a small group of anarchists. She is excited to meet Johann Most, a left wing newspaper publisher, who is renowned within the movement. His primary mantra is espousing the eight hour work day. But as Emma becomes more involved with Most in both a personal sense and for the cause, it brings up the idealistic struggles within the movement between someone like Most who has the ear of the public, and Sasha Berkman, a younger anarchist who has his own thoughts about how best to forward the cause. Berkman, with who Emma would begin a personal relationship, believes that assassinating steel magnate Henry Clay Frick - who many see as the puppet for industrialist Andrew Carnegie - over the Homestead Steel strike would send an important message, one that Most believe foolish. From this struggle would emerge Emma's own voice within the cause. Written by Huggo
