Plot Summary
In 1962, the residents of a small town in Newfoundland make plans to relocate when the government shuts down a nearby copper mine, the sole source of work in the close-knit community. But obstinate miner John Munn (Gordon Pinsent) -- with the support of his "Missus" (Jackie Burroughs) and their son, Matt (Randy Follett) -- refuses the settlement payout offered to the locals, instead choosing to stay behind in a seemingly futile attempt to rescue his ancestral home.
