This story of a Welsh valley's turn-of-the-century descent from pristine paradise to despoiled coal mining region, is told in flashback form by Huw Morgan, an old man who has decided to leave the valley forever. Huw is the youngest in a family of 6 brothers and 1 sister and the film centers on his struggle toward manhood amid conflicting demands of faith, economics, education and family loyalty in a Wales caught in an irreversible shift from a pastoral to an industrialized society. The story, based on the novel by Richard Llewellyn, is accented by an impressive background of Welsh choral music and quaint patterns of speech. - Joe Jurca, IMDb

Main character of this film, a boy (13) comes from a numerous Welsh family of miners, decides to give up his dreams about learning. Just like his father he becomes a miner so he could take care of widowed sister-in-law, whose husband died in a mine. The boy secretly loved her but Bronwyn didn't returned his feelings.
