Starring Marshall Williams ("Glee", "How to Build a Better Boy" - Disney), Laura Slade Wiggins ("Shameless", "Rings"), Lisa Bell & Gregg Henry ("Guardians of the Galaxy", "Scandal"). Director Robert Adetuyi ("Stomp the Yard", "Bring It On") teams up with two-time Emmy Award-winning cinematographer Roy Wagner in this movie adaptation of Juno-award-winning composer Danny Schur & Rick Chafe's hit musical ("One wonders if Evita will impress as much" - Star Phoenix, "Irresistibly catchy" - CBC Radio, "One of the best new musicals I have seen onstage " - Globe & Mail). Synopsis: 1919. Stefan and his father Mike fled Ukraine for the New World, where they struggle to earn enough to re-unite their family. Stefan is instantly smitten with the Jewish suffragette neighbour, Rebecca - but Rebecca's brother Moishe and Mike oppose the would-be Romeo and Juliet. Returned soldiers, angry at the lack of jobs after the war, violently threaten the city's immigrants, including Emma, the refugee from racist persecution in Oklahoma. When a movement develops for all workers to leave their jobs in protest, AJ Anderson, a wealthy lawyer, pits everyone against each other in a dramatic and inspirational final stand.

An immigrant Romeo & Juliet battle for love and a better life during a time of social upheaval, the musical is set against the true story of the general worker strikes of 1919.

"Stand tells the important story of the power of collective action. Workers should see this film to learn not only about labor history but the important value of fighting for our rights and greater justice."
