AFS Presents: Women's Day

An (eventually) uplifting drama, Women's Day gives the “Solidarity” movement of the 1980s a feminist point-of-view for the 21st century. In the same vein as Norma Rae, Karen Silkwood and Erin Brockovich, Halina Radwan reaches a point in her business career that she won’t “take it anymore.” What seems to be a great opportunity at first turns into a nightmare, as she is promoted from cashier to manager of a Butterfly grocery store, one in a nationwide chain of supermarkets in post-Communist Poland. Not only does Halina have to contend with the nasty jealousy of former colleagues – now her employees – and the sexual harassment of her own male boss, but she also has to deal with an already agnostic, school-skipping teenage daughter, Misia, who spends far more time on her computer than in helping her hard-working mother around the house.
