The story follows Josey Aimes (Charlize Theron) returning home after a failed marriage and a bitter divorce, and two kids to feed and take care of. Desperate for a job, she turns to the only source of employment in town, the iron mines. Despite the fact that it’s an extremely demanding job, she is left with no other choice. Once on site though, she is faced with much more than hard physical work and conditions; being a predominantly male environment the few women present are subject to humiliations, degrading remarks, and above all unsolicited touching and harassment. Now speared by the fearless determined Aimes (Charlize Theron) a group of women file a court motion that will be remembered as the first major case of sexual harassment in the United States, a landmark case that changed sexual harassment laws in the United States.
