Coal in their Veins | Film

‘Coal In Their Veins’ will highlight the devastation the closure of the coal pits had on mining communities, which is still felt today.

Families lost their livelihoods, work for miners dried up, and as the children of the Miner’s Strike came of age, they turned to drugs where work and hope was no longer.

‘Coal Ran In Their Veins’ is a story of survival and resilliance

The film will be told through the personal experience a mother and her son in the grip of heroin addiction. We face the daily struggles of addiction, the depth of a mother’s love for her child, and witness an unexpected turn of events, and hope for other families coping with similar experiences of addiction.
