BROTHERS ON THE LINE explores the social-action legacy of the Reuther brothers - Walter, Roy and Victor - pioneering labor organizers and justice statesmen, and their remarkable leadership of the United Auto Workers union from 1946-1970.  Directed by Victor;s grandson Sasha Reuther and narrated by Martin Sheen, the film follows the brothers from their rise as shop-floor organizers in 1930's Detroit to leaders in collective bargaining, pensions, healthcare, civil and worker rights, and international labor solidarity.  Rare UAW archive footage, personal photos, oral histories, and interviews with a braod spectrum of labor, civil rights, and political personalities chronicle one family's quest to compel American democracy to live up to its promise of equality.
