An investigation into the institutional and political concealment of a new documentary, Blood on the Mountain, a fake and exploitative history of the coal industry on the insidious and treacherous relationship with the West Virginia people and territories.
It is also the indictment of communities who want to trade this past and future for another day in mines. This is the ultimate tragedy of the story. The coal industry, the past, the future, and the people of West Virginia are slovenly, but the people of West Virginia continue to march to solve the problems of the present. Filmmakers Mari-Lynn Evans and Jordan Freeman elaborate on the loss of charcoal in Appalachia through wars and wars, interviews, archive clips and news footage, and they capture you after shock, anger and painful roller coaster.
