A vivid retelling of the night on which Florence Reece wrote the iconic union song, Which Side Are You On?" in her company-owned house while the sheriffs thugs shot holes through the walls at her and her children. Union organizing was a dangerous endeavor, but Pa's determination and the song itself helped to reshape the mining industry in America.
