Set in 1910, this is the simple yet evocative story of one family’s fight for physical and moral survival in the poverty and squalor of the dockland slums of Tyneside. At the centre of the tale of tragedy, humour, intrigue and love, is the apparently impossible love affair between rugged docker John O’Brien and Mary Llewellyn, a schoolteacher.
