This drama is based on a tragic event that took place in Kapuskasing, Ontario, in 1963. A strike, declared illegal, had been causing misery among the loggers employed by the Spruce Falls Paper Company. A local farmers' cooperative continued to sell wood to the company despite the strike. Tensions rose, farmers and loggers clashed, and three men were killed. The story describes what happens when, a year later, the son of a farmer involved in the clash goes to work for the company. His first day at logging camp shows that old feelings die hard.
