It is 1984, and the Kent coalfields face closure. Striking miner Bradley is haunted by the pit which killed his father. When his wife’s vigorous campaigning for the saving of the pit intensifies, he retreats into his allotment to contemplate a heart-rending decision. With his sister pregnant and scared of the world discovering her secret, Bradley is faced with a difficult decision: voluntary redundancy would bring enough to buy a small-holding in the country where there is a promise of a new life for his family, but to qualify he must break the strike and defy everything his wife stands for. Dare he become a scab and risk losing the woman he loves?
