Luther Lewis, inflexible and autocratic, bestrides his pits like a colossus. He is feared and hated and grudges go deep. Many pits are closed or on short time and it needs only a spark to create... More > industrial chaos. Tom Morgan, union man, provides the spark, and Dai Crew’s hatred causes the fateful blow to be struck. The resultant calamity is quite unlike the popular conception of a mining disaster and many families become embroiled. Above ground, non-one knows who, if anyone, has survived – and then it becomes known that Lewis himself was one of those below ground at the time of the cave-in. Whilst the task of getting to survivors begins, the disaster provokes all – those safe on the surface and those trapped below – to start a process of soul searching. For some it is a wake-up call - others have no soul to search. Behind every face is a story – and behind many of these faces are ugly secrets that would do better to stay hid.< Less
