HEART-warming story based on real events of UK gay activists working to help miners during the bitter and lengthy strike by the National Union of Mineworkers.
It’s the summer of 1984, Margaret Thatcher is in power and the NUM is on strike. At the Gay Pride March in London, a group of gay and lesbian activists decides to raise money to support the families of the striking miners. But there is a problem. The Union seems embarrassed to receive their support.
But the activists are not deterred. They decide to ignore the Union and go direct to the miners. They identify a mining village in deepest Wales and set off in a mini-bus to make their donation in person. And so begins the extraordinary story of two seemingly alien communities who form a surprising and ultimately triumphant partnership.
