Drama set in a Welsh coal mining valley where a young man with a beautiful singing voice is called upon to make the ultimate sacrifice when a pit disaster threatens.

Paul Robeson stars as David Goliath, a charismatic African-American ship's stoker who washes up in a small mining village in Wales, where he finds work alongside the miners down the pit, and his magnificent singing voice attracts the attention of local choir director, who has ambitions of winning the national choir contest on the strength of Goliath's talent. However, a mining disaster puts both of these occupations on hold, and Goliath rouses a group of activists to march to London in the hope of reopening the mine in time to serve the nation's wartime needs.
