Description

New York City, 1911. Immigrants are arriving in floods from all over Europe and for many, the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory is one of the most coveted places to work. Based on a true event, Paved with Gold and Ashes follows Rose, Ida, Rosaria, Lucia and Annie, five teenage factory workers, as they fight for their promise of the American dream. Some people say that in America, the streets are paved with gold; full of wealth and opportunities. But as these young women battle poverty, capitalism and unfair working conditions, their dreams may turn to ashes...
