(2015)(United States)

A black, apprentice carpenter struggles to prove herself on her first day at a new job site. An outlier in a white, male-dominated workforce, she’s forced to navigate the crew’s reactions to her. When things come to a head, she receives inspiration from a surprising source that helps her realize she has to make a stand or risk never being recognized as the skilled worker she has become.
