Summary
A housewife and an elderly woman believe that the industrial plants in their town are health hazards. They fight for what they believe to be true at the risk of destroying their own personal lives. Based on the true story of the group of women who banded together to defeat Shintech's plans to build a vinyl chloride monomer-polyvinyl chloride complex at Convent, LA. The cards were stacked against the women as the governor, the Louisiana Association of Business & Industry (Baton Rouge), and even the state Department of Environmental Quality take Shintech's side
