Meg and her twelve-year-old brother Jamie take jobs in a shirt factory in Montreal. Soon they discover they have been hired at rock-bottom wages to replace striking workers. First it's the anger of the strikers and then it's the cold, hunger and long, exhausting days that start to drag them down.
Slowly, however, they make new friends and discover that if they work together, they can make changes even in the evil world of factory work of the 1870s.
