Don’t let the b******s get you down!
Grimley, South Yorkshire has been mining coal for over 100 years, but as the mine faces closure so does the much loved and much needed Grimley Colliery Band. Life for the miners and band members looks bleak. Band leader Danny urges them to stick with it and take part in the National Brass Band Contest and with the arrival of stunning flugelhorn player, Gloria, they agree. But as the competition draws close so does the fate of the mine and the frictions and stresses of being on the picket line become all too evident. And whose side is Gloria on anyway?
