Based on powerful true stories, The Mill continues its tale of workers at the time of the industrial revolution – a revolution that would build an empire for the bosses, and a new world of unionised labour and the vote for the workers. But first, there is much to be done. Young Esther, a girl not afraid to stand up for her rights finds herself negotiating her freedom, as life at the Mill faces new challenges. Migrant labourers have arrived and all around is change and striving, with workers rallying for their rights. The future awaits them with all that is both good and bad still to come.
