Children at recess witness the conflict between anti-mutiny forces and workers on strike. The neighborhood of a mining town is transformed into a battlefield, for the last time. After the strike fails, calm returns to the streets and workers to the job, with the certainty that the closure of the wells can no longer be stopped.
