Sixteen-year-old lifelong friends and neighbors, Andrew Stewart and Nick Rakos, decide on their first day at work digging coal that there had to be better and safer ways of Knockin' the Black Out, taking more coal from the earth. From that point on their lives took different tacks.Caught up in the turmoil of changes in the coalfields in the middle of the twentieth century, Andy and Nick take two extremely different routes to improve their lot: one through technology and the other through unionization: and become bitter enemies. Both make marriages of convenience which cause them many problems: Nick marrying a poor orphaned camp girl so that she and her mother won't have to move out of the company house, while Andy marries the daughter of the owner of the coal mine.The men cement their friendship again when they are hopelessly trapped together in a cave-in.
