Boron, population 2000+, is home to many miners and their families, and is a close knit community where workers have lived stable middle-class lives for many generations. But their jobs and way of life were threatened when Rio Tinto locked them out of work on January 31st, 2010 and replaced them with scabs. Will the workers' way of life be destroyed? Who will win this David and Goliath struggle?
