Production Description
In 2010, the Upper Big Branch mine explosion killed 29 men, and tore a hole in the lives of countless others. In this riveting, emotionally stunning new work based on first-person accounts by survivors and family members, Jessica Blank, Erik Jensen, and Steve Earle, dig deep into the lives and loss of the most deadly mining disaster in recent U.S. history.
