Description

Based on a true story, this stirring Korean drama tells the David-vs-Goliath tale of a group of women who band together to protest the unjust labor practices of a Walmart-eqsue big box retail store after being fired from their part-time positions. Just before getting the promotion promised to her, mother of two and part-time cashier Sun-hee is abruptly laid off, along with hundreds of other workers—via text message, no less—when the company decides to outsource their jobs. Sun-hee turns from shy worker bee to passionate protest leader as the company’s core of female workers rally to fight against their unfair termination and expose the corporation’s mistreatment of its workers. “Cart” is an empowering social justice drama, a testament to ordinary people’s ability to rise up and fight injustice.
