This is a substantially true story of a London gay and lesbian group that feels solidarity with the coal minors on strike in the U.K. in 1984 as both groups as being oppressed by the government or someone else. The London group raises money for the minors in a little town in Wales. When the London group actually visits the minor community, they are not well received by many people there. Over time, some of the townspeople come to appreciate the London group, but the community eventually repudiates the London group. There are a couple of scenes of wonderfully stirring music.
