| Entertaining, educational and a right good watch.
A superb community film with high production values. The film fully captures the Fife Mining Community values and view of life. Set in 1926 with many cast members playing their Grandparents it is well acted and gripping throughout. The story is told wonderfully well and is a joy for all ages. The main characters are come across as being real and the performances are excellent given that the actors had no previous experience. The people from TWS(Theatre Workshop Scotland) have done a remarkable job. All of the sets were made by volunteers. I believe that it will be shown on BBC Scotland at some point but the big screen is always better than the small one, in my opinion.

Watch out for it and go see it.
