The film is an intimate exploration, through a live performance of the one-man play, of the life and times of this extraordinary radical labor leader, Harry Bridges – “a hero or the devil incarnate, it all depends on your point of view”. It is full of the high drama and biting humor that ran through his life. And it is a springboard into understanding the parallel issues – globalization, global responsibilities, wars on terrorism, surveillance and privacy, and the widening gap between rich and poor, that we face today.
