From the Director of Calendar Girls comes the inspirational and feel-good story of Rita, a plucky factory worker who took on the biggest corporation in the world.
In Spring 1968 what starts as a dispute over pay leads to an uprising amongst the women workers of the Ford Motor Plant in Britain.
Rita is a normal 60's girl. A young mother, all she wants is a good life for herself and her family. Though it's not the perfect job, sewing car seatcovers is all she's got. When she learns her male colleagues are paid more for the same work, Rita can't sit back and do nothing.
She empowers the women around her to demand what they deserve. To Ford, these courageous women mean nothing. But they hadn't counted on Rita. She's a leader, she's a winner and she'll change history.
