Man v. Machine. Or rather, Woman v. Machine. It's New York City, 1919, Bell Atlantic's telephone switchboard exchange, where the boozy bon vivant Lucille rules over her hive of women operators and the men who supposedly manage them. But when the new girl June clandestinely tries to collectivize and unionize the operators, she sets off a chain reaction. The catch: management can replace the women with the mighty STROWGER, an automated switching machine. In the end, it's Lucille v. STROWGER, the bleeding heart of Christ v. the Corporation, and one woman's determination not to lose her way of life and herself. Number, please?
