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 â€“ â€œa hero or the devil incarnate, it all depends on your point of viewâ€. 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 â€“ globalization, global responsibilities, wars on terrorism, surveillance and privacy, and the widening gap between rich and poor, that we face today.
