Based on a powerful true story, The Mill begins in the turbulent year of 1833, a time when industry is sweeping children as young as nine into the factories and mills to work 12-hour days. But things are about to change as one feisty young girl, Esther Price (Kerrie Hayes) decides to take a stand against the mill-owners and the lackeys who rule their tired and hungry lives.
The Greg family pride themselves on treating their workers fairly; but in the hands of those who carry out their orders, from the Timperleys maintaining the apprentice house, to those overseeing the mill floor, kindness can soon become cruelty, with injustice and suppression the norm.
But the world is changing. Inside, Daniel Greg, the mill-owner’s son, is taking over the business and modernising ruthlessly; while outside, civil disobedience is on the rise. With migrant labourers arriving in the form of the Howlett family from down South all around is change and striving, with workers rallying for their rights and the Greg Family struggling to maintain the status quo.
Regardless, the future awaits them kicking and screaming like a newborn baby with all that is both good and bad still to come.
