Free and Open to the public!

Eastovers refusal to sign a contract (when the miners joined with the United Mine Workers of America) led to a strike, which lasted more than a year and included violent battles between gun-toting company thugs/scabs and the picketing miners and their supportive women-folk. Director Barbara Kopple puts the strike into perspective by giving us some background on the historical plight of the miners and some history of the UMWA.
