Matthew Warchus directs this British drama inspired by real events during the 1984 miners' strike. When activist Mark Ashton (Ben Schnetzer) garners support at a Gay Pride rally in London for his plan to raise funds in support of the striking miners, he encounters a surprising impediment to his plan: most mining communities refuse to take money from gay and lesbian groups. However, one Welsh village, Dulais, seem grateful for the support. Mark and his friends hire a minibus and visit the villagers to consolidate the relationship. Though the villagers don't completely accept their visitors straight away, the community, which includes Hefina (Imelda Staunton), Dai (Paddy Considine) and Cliff (Bill Nighy), gradually warm to Mark and his friends as they realise the common causes that bind them.
