On 'Black Friday' (first big shopping day after Thanksgiving 2012), Walmart was the target of protests around the country that pointed the finger at the big box store's unfair treatment of its workers. Following the successful actions and strike at the giant Chicago-area Walmart warehouses facility a few weeks earlier, a number of protests popped up at retail stores in the area.

Includes scenes two days before Black Friday, where a night protest included projecting a labor video on the side wall at the downtown Chicago Walmart. Also large protest march at the Chatham store, North Avenue store, and interviews with Walmart workers Tyrone Robinson, Linda Haluska, Phil Bailey, speeches, more.
