The film tells the story of a women sardine workers’ strike in Douarnenez in 1924. A widow is struggling for her son to have a better life than his father, a fisherman who died at sea.

The Douarnenez Penn Sardin already stopped working in 1905 to be paid by the hour, and not by the piece. In 1924, the strikers demand a wage increase.
