Synopsis

Based on a real strike in a New Mexico mine, this drama deals with the prejudice against the Mexican-American workers. They went on strike for equal pay with the Anglo workers and fair treatment by the bosses. It's an early look at feminism as the miners' wives played a pivotal role in the strike.
