About the film:

After a mine explosion kills her brother, a pro-coal activist joins forces with a tree-hugging grandmother to take down the most dangerous coal company in the United States. Lorelei, fighting to stop mountaintop removal, launches a campaign to build wind farm. Betty, who lost her brother in the disaster, joins Lorelei’s fight to bring justice and economic diversity to the coal fields of Appalachia. Director Chad Stevens presents the determination of the pair as they balance the town’s economic need for coal with its devastating impact.
