Three guys, two African-American and one Polish, work on the production line in a Detroit automobile factory, and they are fed-up with the conditions. It dawns on them that their workers' union is doing them no greater good than their screwed-up bosses. So the trio pulls off a clumsy robbery at union HQ, in which they only gain access to some suspicious documents that point to union links with organized crime. Suddenly they're out of their league: violence, paranoia, rivarly, and recrimination erupt around them.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A dark-tinged prole caper, a crimson tableau of impotent wrath"
‑ Fernando F. Croce, CinePassion
"It's intense, well-acted, gives one a good idea about everyday factory life and offers a clear-sighted muckraking take on blue collar types ..."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"Although the film does not tell us how to break out of the plantations we know too well, it does give us a vivid sense of the problems and the pitfalls of those who try."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
