From a factory dressmaker to an international trade union leader, the life of Marta Matamoros was dedicated to the defense of the rights of Panamanian women and workers. Her struggle brought her persecution and imprisonment, bitter moments that became great victories: the attainment of the minimum wage and paid maternity leave. These benefits that today are taken for granted were the great achievements in the life of this Panamanian pioneer who we will get to know through this film.
