The Story

The story begins the night before a march to commemorate the bitter defeat of the Miners’ Strike of 30 years ago in a village in South Yorkshire.  For 100 years Hatfield Colliery has stood at the heart of the village.  Now it is one of Britain’s last coal mines and faces closure as cheap imports flood the market.   Les Moore is a striking miner who cannot let go of the past.   As he joins the fight to preserve the memory of the men who worked down the pit his sons must find a way to survive in a hurt and forgotten community.
