How is a woman ever to have a husband when the men all belong to their mothers?

During the miner's strike of 1912, newly-married Minnie discovers her husband Luther has made another woman pregnant. The drama reaches boiling point as Minnie struggles to reclaim her husband - not only from her rival but also from his formidable mother.
