Fiery Mexican sisters Maya and Rosa work as cleaners in a down town office block. A fated meeting with Sam, a passionate American activist, leads to a guerrilla campaign against their employers. The fight threatens their livelihood, family and risks their expulsion from the country. Bread and Roses is a story about the most marginalized of LA communities daring to take on their corporate bosses against all odds
Bread and Roses is inspired by the real life "Justice for Janitors" campaign led by immigrant cleaners, mostly women, in LA. Loach unravels the events centring his tale on the spirited Latin American community who, with their battle cry of "no justice, no peace", dare to take on the corporate powers and find a sense of dignity.
