Summary
A rousing and human portrayal of visionary labor leader Harry Bridges' passions, struggles and wicked sense of humor, and a trip through some of America's most turbulent years with one of her most dynamic players as your guide. He was a hero or the devil incarnate; it all depended on your point of view. His fights for workers rights, rank and file democracy, an end to racial and religious prejudice and discrimination and for a national health care system marked him as a communist, but 21 years of trials failed to deport this Australian radical. And through it all he always had a twinkle in his eye, through all those trials and divorces and Jack Daniels. He withstood McCarthyism and assassination attempts, and held to the belief that "there will always be a place for us somewhere, somehow, as long as we see to it that the working people struggle on, fight for everything they have, fight for everything they hope to get, for dignity, equality, democracy, to oppose war and to bring to the world a better life. See?"
