In the early 1900's, the legendary Joe Hill emigrates with his brother to
the United States. But after a short time, he loses touch with his brother.
Joe gets a few jobs but is struck by all the injustice and tragedy going
on. He becomes active in the forbidden union IWW, a union for workers
without trades. It is forbidden to demonstrate and to speak in public but
Joe gets around that by singing his manifests with the Salvation Army. He
manages to get more and more people to get on strike with him but he also
makes powerful enemies doing that. Finally he gets connected with a murder
and during the trial he fires his lawyer and takes upon himself to become
his own defender. (https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0067276/)
