Overview

The Both of Me unfolds like a eulogy — memorializing a way of life, a trade and the Appalachian communities whose death came at the hands of the coal industry. Told largely through Chuck Nelson, a third-generation miner who toiled underground for more than 20 years, it lays bare how the industry leaves behind scarred land and bereft people.
