The industrial revolution is in full swing. A new century looms. Michael works down the coal pit in a small West Midlands town. His muscles ache. He coughs black gunk. Life is shit. There’s no hope for him, his wife or their son. That is until Michael knocks a chunk of gold from the seam. Along with his mate Cain, he hides it away and brings it to the surface. His future is made. Then Cain disappears. As does the gold. Fucked if Michael will let him get away with it.
