Film details

Synopsis

Comedy drama set in Yorkshire featuring five miners who lose their jobs when their colliery closes down. As a thank-you to the Women Against Pit Closures campaign, they book a group of male strippers for a party. When the strippers fail to turn up, they do the strip themselves. After a few dancing lessons, they take up stripping professionally and become the toast of the hen-night circuit.
