Already torn between his parents' opposing viewpoints on how to handle the escalating situation, Bryan's growing feelings for the daughter of a nonunion worker only complicate matters.Bryan tries to understand the turmoil affecting his home and his town, but it is becomes harder and harder to separate his friends from his enemies.
