The film stars Sally Field in the titular role. Beau Bridges, Ron Leibman, Pat
Hingle, Barbara Baxley and Gail Strickland appear in supporting roles.

union organizer and decides to join the effort to reform working
conditions. This Oscar-winning drama follows Norma's crusade, as she leads
a shutdown despite the opposition of her family and employers.
