Summary
This film centers on the 24 days in 2005 when the first-ever strike occurred at one of the world's largest slaughterhouses, Lakeside Packers. It is is a nuanced portrait of people working together and adapting to change. In a decade, tiny Brooks, Alberta has been transformed from a socially conservative, primarily Caucasian town to one of the most diverse places in Canada. Immigrants and refugees have flocked here to work at Lakeside Packers, a company known for its equal treatment of workers: all were treated poorly. People like Peter Jany Khwai, who escaped war in Sudan, wears an African shirt and a cowboy hat, and affirms his Canadian identity as well as his determination to fight for his rights. Or Edil Hassan, a devout Muslim born in Somalia, who counts her hours of organizing and picketing among her proudest moments. As 24 Days in Brooks shows, people from widely different backgrounds can work together for respect, dignity, and change - even though getting there is not easy
