Plot Summary
Tom Curtis (Richard Attenborough) works at a factory in England. His life is changed when he refuses to take part in an unofficial strike, organized by new employee Travers (Alfred Burke), a troublemaker who soon leaves the factory. Curtis sees no reason to strike, but his refusal alienates him from the rest of the unionized employees, who brand him a scab. Curtis even faces reprisals at home when a foreman (Bernard Lee) comes and warns him to fall in line.
