1935, New York. A high-stakes union meeting of taxi drivers in disagreement about whether or not to strike. Clifford Odets’ classic unfolds in a series of vignettes exploring the issues of fair pay, collective bargaining, bigotry, war, political manipulation, and the conflict between the interests of the haves versus the have-nots. With Lefty, their elected leader, nowhere to be found, each man is forced to decide a course of action for himself. Revealing, in the process, how they have reached this point in life and what consequences a strike would have on each of them and the people they love.
