Synopsis

It’s the turn of the century and 70-year-old Mary Harris Jones does the unthinkable—she reinvents herself as “Mother” Jones and sets out to save the downtrodden workers of America! Her age is her “armor and her sword” as she fights for human dignity, leading a march of ragged mill children on a quest to end child labor. This female Don Quixote defies convention and jail time on her tireless crusade for justice and in the process transforms the life of her young protégé, Jenny.
