The historical strike of the clock-making factory of LIP (1973-1974), by the importance of the questions it raised, by the way it was organized inside the factory, by its momentum and its popularity, became one of the great social events of the second half of the twentieth century.
This film, edited under the control of the workers, relates their struggle from the inside.
