BREAD AND ROSES is the story of the plight of illegal Latino workers in Los Angeles and a union organizer’s attempt to give them a better life. The movie opens with a young illegal immigrant, Maya, escaping from one of the men who helped her get into the United States, only to rape her. Maya to finally gets to her sister, Rosa, who gets her a job cleaning offices. On her first day on the job, she rescues a union organizer, Sam, from the building’s security guards. A romance develops, and Maya starts to help Sam organize the workers. Maya robs a gas station, however, to help another illegal alien, and gets into numerous fights with her sister.
