A timely and relevant story of revolt against greed and apathy for the working class, Beate shows how different walks of life can come together and unite against a common enemy. After receiving notification via group text message that they are being laid off, the hardworking female employees of the Veronica garment factory decide to“borrow” some of the factory’s equipment to produce their own line of lingerie. Lead by factory forewoman Armida, the group is determined to overcome the odds and make their business a success, despite their lack of resources. Armida enlists the help of nuns from a nearby convent in the cross hairs of a greedy developer who wants to turn it into a resort, devising a plan for both the nuns and factory workers to work together to save the convent and grow the new lingerie business. However, the team soon comes under attack from the owner of Veronica, the developer, and the convent’s Mother Superior, from whom the whole operation had to be kept secret.
