IN DUBIOUS BATTLE
Set in the orchards of California Valley in the dirty ’30s, Mac McLeod and Jim Nolan are idealists from “The Party” who are appalled by the orchards’ terrible working conditions and set out to organize the fruit pickers. They are met with skepticism and hostility when they first suggest unionizing. Most of the pickers simply want to work and get paid, even if they are being mercilessly exploited. Surrounding the two activists is a cast of eclectic characters with varying loyalties, among them the ruthless orchard owner, who is determined to crack down on any strike action.
