This is the rousing true story of women in 1940s Kirkland Lake, Ontario who fought to improve conditions for their husbands working in the town’s hard-rock mines. When the siren that signals an accident at the mine sounds yet again, they become the heart and soul of a union organizing drive that eventually changes their lives – and the world.
