Synopsis

On Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia, in the 1940s, Margaret MacNeil (Helena Bonham-Carter) has resolved to have nothing more to do with miners after the pit claimed the lives of both her father and elder brother. She is charmed, however, by Neil Currie (Clive Russell), an ex-miner who washes dishes in the local café. They marry, on the condition that Neil never returns to the mines. When he loses his dish-washing job, however, it seems he has little alternative.
