This fictionalized, routine account of the closing of a mining town leaves more questions than it is supposed to answer -- mainly because most viewers will not know the issues involved. Back before he became Canada's Prime Minister, Brian Mulrooney was in charge of an iron-ore company and voluntarily shut down the company town of Schefferville. He sent a population of 5,000 to go live elsewhere and returned the land to the Native Americans who were also living there at the time. The story of the town closing is sketched from the viewpoints of the local kids, serves as a backdrop for one divorce, and is played down by a geologist who is there to study the traces of the last glacial activity.
