The film concerns Paul Alexei Sayle , a Welsh former miner and aspiring screenwriter , who writes a hard-hitting filmscript about his own experiences of the Miners' Strike. Its subject matter, cinema release, and prestigious award success all contributed to making The Strike one of the most famous of all the Comic Strip films.
