English Summary:

F.I.S.T. (stylized on-screen as F•I•S•T) is a 1978 American crime neo noir drama film directed by Norman Jewison and starring Sylvester Stallone. Stallone plays a Cleveland warehouse worker who becomes involved in the labor union leadership of the fictional "Federation of Inter-State Truckers" (F.I.S.T.). The film is loosely based on the Teamsters union and their former President Jimmy Hoffa.

At a loading dock in Cleveland in 1937, supervisor Mr. Gant hires a new worker, Lincoln Dombrowsky. Gant tells Dombrowsky that he will be paid for his regular shift only even if he must work overtime, and that any merchandise he damages will come directly out of his pay. When Dombrowsky drops a few carts of tomatoes, his pay is docked and another worker is fired for helping him collect the fallen merchandise. Resentful of these unfair labor practices, worker Johnny Kovak leads a riot. The laborers go to the office of Boss Andrews, where Kovak believes he negotiates a deal for the workers, only to find out the next day that he and his friend Abe Belkin have been fired.

Kovak and Belkin are approached by Mike Monahan, who was impressed by their leadership. He offers them positions in the Federation of Inter State Truckers (F.I.S.T.), where they will be paid according to how many members they can recruit. Kovak is given a car to use while recruiting, which also allows him to meet and soon start dating Anna Zarinka. Kovak is successfully recruiting new F.I.S.T. members, which attracts attention from business owners. When Kovak turns down their offer to recruit new workers to their non-union trucking firms, the shady owners have him physically attacked. Kovak rises into a leadership role through his union recruiting, causing competition with hothead F.I.S.T. leader Max Graham.

 

Hungarian Summary:

Johnny Kovak kamionsofőrként dolgozik. A harmincas évek Amerikájában járunk, a szakszervezeti mozgalmak hajnalán, és Johnny sem kerülheti el, hogy belekeveredjen a dolgozók, a munkáltatók és a maffia ügyeibe. Johnny Mike Monahannek segít beszervezni kollégáit a szakszervezetbe. Hisz abban, hogy egységes fellépéssel sikerülhet javítani a dolgozók munkakörülményein. De a társaság nem nézi jó szemmel a szerveződést, ezért Monahant megöletik. Johnny a szakszervezet vezetőjének halála után kapcsolatba kerül Vince Doyle-lal, egy helyi gengszterrel. A Monahan halálát követő dühös szakszervezeti tüntetést követően Johnny veszi kézbe a dolgok irányítását. Némi részesedést igérve Doyle-nak megszerzi a maffia támogatását is, így az általa vezetett szakszervezet - és vele együtt ő maga is - egyre hatalmasabb, hatékonyabb, gazdagabb és veszélyesebb lesz. Az ötvenes évek végére Johnny hatalma odáig terjed, hogy képes lesz alvilági módszerekkel kikészíteni nagy riválisát, a nemzetközi szakszervezeti mozgalom egyik vezetőjét. Azzal nem számol, hogy lesz egy elrettenthetetlen szenátor, aki szövetségi vizsgálatot mer indítani ellene...
