At the Stella D'oro ("star of gold") cookie factory in the Bronx, NY, a proud group of multi-cultural, and mostly immigrant, workers go on strike in hopes of protecting their jobs and upholding their union contracts. Their cry: No Contract, No Cookies! This film highlights the close ties that developed between the employees over the course of their 11-month strike as they held boycott marches and rallies as well as family gatherings at their homes.
