Bread And Roses
Ken Loach’s rare venture to the United States stars Oscar-winner Adrien Brody. In Los Angeles, undocumented Mexican immigrant Maya (Pilar Padilla) finds work as a janitor through her sister, Rosa (Elpidia Carrillo). However, since both work for a non-union company, conditions are grim.
After putting up with abuse from her bosses, Maya is open to the pro-union rhetoric offered by organiser Sam Shapiro (Brody). Rosa, however, is far less interested in clashing with management, given the needs of her family, and the situation drives a rift between the sisters.
