COMPLETED. "Frank, a Joe Sixpack kinda guy, crosses paths with a schizophrenic  'touched' by the Voodoo god Papa Legba, who in-turn tests Frank's mettle during a race riot."

In 1978, ironworker and union steward Frank O'Brien digs his life: great wife, tight family, and a job he loves, raising skyscrapers for a firm whose owner he respects. Smooth going until his manager, Howard, stirs racial tensions. Soon, Frank's forced to fight the good fight alone. 

Standing tall seems to work, and he even manages a few allies. Until the Voodoo god Papa Legba mucks up the works.  And all bets are off.

My father worked at a steel mill in Gary, IN. The dialog sounds just like him.
