Award-winning documentary that deals with labour relations in the USA, as told through the story of the Greek migrant and union activist Louis Tikas. The events of the great 1913-1914 coalminers’ strike in Colorado and Tikas’s murder are recounted through oral, family and of-ficial sources. Interviews with historians, artists and descendants of the striking miners create a moving story of memory and identity in America today.
