Synopsis
Shows the activities of striking miners and the women’s support group during the period up to Christmas 1984 in the village of Penrhiwceibr in South Wales. Through an impressionistic combination of reminiscences and music, including the singing of a Welsh male voice choir, illustrates the spirit of comradeship and mutual support which sustained the community through a period of hardship. In June 1985 the National Coal Board announced plans to close down the Penrhiwceibr colliery.
