Inspired by the true events of 1968, “Made in Dagenham” tells the story of Rita O’Grady - a busy mum, loving wife and hard-working Ford factory employee, who along with her female colleagues, works long hours sewing car seats and who get their pay grade dropped to ‘unskilled’. Finding a voice she never knew she had, Rita leads the women on a trailblazing battle for equal pay taking on the Unions, Ford’s top brass and the Government. It’s a gritty, funny, and emotional tale of love, friendship, and the importance of “Standing Up” for what you know is right.

Caution! Contains strong language from the factory floor.
