Description: This is the story of working people who decide to fight back against a corrupt and brutal system. Against the backdrop of Argentina's historic economic collapse, the film chronicles the extraordinary story of workers and activists who take back their bankrupted businesses, and run them without bosses. To reclaim their lives and their dignity, they first have to face down the former owners, the trigger-happy police, and, in the midst of national elections, the prospect of a repressive government returning to power.
