Set in the 1940s on Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia, "Margaret's Museum" is a bittersweet Celtic love story that depicts the grindingly impoverished lives of coal miners trapped, several generations deep, in a company town. Having already lost her father and brother to mining disasters, the headstrong young Margaret MacNeil fights to keep her new husband safe and thereby becomes a social outcast in her community.
