An immigrant coal miner finds himself in the middle of a bitter labor dispute between the workers and the mine owners.
Mike's murder was based on an actual strike case in which a miner by the name of John Barkoski (spelling of his last name varies by source) was killed by three company policemen employed by the Pittsburgh Coal Company in 1929.
At c. 24 minutes Joe is counting out his money, but he is inconceivably inaccurate. After counting to 68 dollars he places two further bills on the table and counts "73" out loud. A few moments later he counts up to 75 dollars, but, after four more bills have been placed in front of him he announces "76" dollars as his total.
