Young Addie dotes on her widowed father Floyd. The teenage couple Paul and May expect their first child. Brother and sister Jack and Ruth are the only family each other has left. The mine where the men work is old, nearly picked clean, and about to be closed when part of it collapses, trapping them. The foreman gives the women the Company line: Go home and pray. We'll handle it. However, a terrible secret waits to be discovered, and it will change all these lives - those above, those below - forever.

Laura Lundgren Smith, a native of Texas, lives in Fort Worth with her husband Ben and daughter India Samhaoir. She holds a Bachelor of Arts with Honors in Theatre and English and a Master of Arts in Theatre from Texas A&M University at Commerce. She was awarded an Arts Council of Ireland Commissions Grant in 2004 for playwriting.

In 2007, her play Seamless was chosen by Dallas' Kitchen Dog Theatre to be part of their renowned New Works Festival.
