Economics and music are the twin focal points of this comedy/drama about a community in crisis. The small British town of Grimley has long been dominated by the coal mine where most of the men work, and the town’s greatest source of pride is the Grimley Colliery Band, a brass ensemble that’s won a number of nationwide competitions. Danny is a retired miner in poor health who directs the band; a national championship is coming up, and Danny is determined that Grimley will walk away with a trophy.
