Depot Docs: The Hand That Feeds
At their local bakery cafe, residents of New York's Upper East Side get bagels and coffee served with a smile 24 hours a day.  But behind the scenes, undocumented immigrant workers face sub-legal wages, dangerous machinery, and abusive managers who will fire them for calling in sick.  Sandwich maker Mahoma L√≥pez has never been interested in politics, but in January 2012, he convinces a small group of his co-workers to fight back.

Risking deportation and the loss of their livelihood, the workers team up with a diverse crew of innovative young organizers, and take the unusual step of forming their own independent union, launching themselves on a journey that will test the limits of their resolve.  In one roller-coaster year, they must overcome a shocking betrayal and a two-month lockout. Lawyers will battle in back rooms, Occupy Wall Street protesters will take over the restaurant, and a picket line will divide the neighborhood. If they can win a contract, it will set a historic precedent for low-wage workers across the country. But whatever happens, Mahoma and his co-workers will never be exploited again.
