Rhys Morgan is haunted by the death of his sister Moira who died when he was sixteen and because of his self reproach he refuses to discuss it. For the love of his wife Nerys he sets aside many of his idealistic principles, and tries to concentrate on doing the best for his family. Events set the Colliery Manager and Rhys Morgan on a collision course, and as World War Two draws to a close the feud has repercussions for the whole Morgan family.
