An Injury to One is an experimental documentary which explores the developing industry in Butte, Montana in the 1880s after its brief period as a gold rush town. Those hoping to strike it rich were left to work for the copper mines, which fuel the nascent electricity industry. In, 1917, as the Anaconda Mining Company gains power, union organizer Frank Little comes to town to organize the miners and falls victim to vigilante justice.
