A biopic about the famous Swedish-American labour activist and songwriter Joe Hill, born Joel Emanuel Hägglund in Gävle, Sweden. The film depicts Hill’s arrival as a poor immigrant in New York in 1902, his involvement with the Industrial Workers of the World, and his trial for murder, during which he defended himself. He was convicted on circumstantial evidence and, despite many pleas for mercy, including two from President Woodrow Wilson, he was executed by firing squad in Salt Lake City, Utah, on 15 November 1915.
