Margaret's Museum synopsis

In a small mining town in 1940s Nova Scotia, Margaret (Helena Bonham Carter) grows to despise the mines after her brother and dad die working there. She then meets Neil (Clive Russell), a bagpipe player who's just as put off by the hard work of rural living as she is. Though her mother disapproves, Margaret and Neil get married, and Neil promises to find work outside of the mines. This proves impossible, though, and Neil is forced to work with the rest of the town's men, with tragic results.
