Plot Summary: "Strike" is the true story of a remarkable and little known figure who was integral in beginning the Solidarity movement and setting Poland on the course to democracy. It's a touching tribute to a true overlooked hero, a woman who undergoes an important awakening – the realization of an ordinary person who simply looks around her and distinguishes right from wrong. Just as the simple action of Rosa Parks refusing to give up her seat provided a catalyst for the entire Civil Rights Movement, so the actions of this single worker set the strikes in the Lenin Shipyards in Gdansk in motion, ultimately bringing about the Solidarity Movement, the rise of Lech Walesa, Perestroika, and eventually to the fall of the Berlin Wall.
