Men take dangerous mining jobs that leave them ragged and diminished. Bar fights erupt.
A child dies, hit by a speeding mining truck. His statements occasionally veer toward the didactic, breaking the surface of an otherwise smooth and affecting narrative. We see tragedy arriving not through the big wallops of war, but rather in corrosive increments — in a newly imposed rule that kids cannot attend school unless they buy a more costly school uniform; in the deformed fish washing up on the riverbanks; and in a wrenching moment when the local cemetery, where Mama Kadie and Pa Moiwa so carefully brought the remains of those killed in the war, is razed to make way for the mine. The people of Imperi do manage to fight back.
