An Indigenous apprentice Ironworker in a city that for a hundred years suppressed the memory of it’s formative struggles learns his trade building a monument to the streetcar tipped over during the bloody climax of the 1919 Winnipeg General Strike. He is joined by a colourful cast of fellow workers; activists; an anarchist; community organizer; a chorus; a labour historian; and a Winnipeg born, Chinese-Métis veteran octogenarian Ironworker with fifty-plus years of labour history.
