A horrible disaster in the Welsh town of Aberfan leaves scores of children dead, but when the Queen takes a week to decide to visit the town to offer solace to its people, she must confront her reasons for postponing the trip.

On October 29, 1966, eight days after the disaster, the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh visited Aberfan to pay their respects to those who had died, coinciding with the end of the main rescue phase.
