The time is late nineteenth century. The place is a Nova Scotia coal mining community in Canada. A visionary young man inherits the mine and takes daring steps in breaking with the long-accepted confrontational management-labour relations traditions. Despite becoming the target of censure by his contemporary mine owners, he presses ahead with daring innovations and enlists the help of talented individuals from among the miners. The result is an improvement in the lives of coal miners, an establishment of a new manufacturing community and an assured future for all. It is the pre-World War world of youthful optimism, of hope, of great expectations, of experimentation and limitless possibilities. It is a tale of romance, adventure and discovery.
