He soon witnesses the devastating effects of mining on the health of his fellow miners, the environment, and the nearby Aboriginal community. Drawn into the local miners' union and safety committee, Peter's confrontations with company officials give him the strength to come to terms with the tragic consequences of his self-centred behaviour, which led to his wife's death.
