Annie Clements has spent her whole life in the copper-mining town of Calumet, Michigan, where men risk their lives for meager salaries, and the women labor in the houses of the elite. When Annie decides to question this system, nearly everyone believes she has taken on more than she is prepared to handle. In this fictionalized account of the Copper Country strike of 1913 by the author of Doc, Annie will risk her reputation, her marriage, and her life for her own independence and the families of Calumet.
