This powerful, contemporary story by Guy Vanderhaeghe dramatizes a family in conflict. A father who despises his job as a miner hopes for a better life for his sons. Billy, the younger, understands his father's aspirations, whereas Gene mocks his father and brother, and turns to drinking and delinquency. Billy makes excuses for Gene's behaviour and takes the blame for his actions until he realizes he cannot cover up for his brother forever.
