Summary
  • A detective on undercover assignment for the mine owners fights to win the coal miners\u0027 trust, and finds himself fighting his own conscience.

The Mollies operate within the improverished mining communities of Pennsylvania and are mostly Irish emigrants. McParlan is selected to infiltrate the organization to pose as a new member, but it quickly becomes apparent that the working conditions are truly wretched.
