Reviewed on 2/17/2014...
Pat Melancon, a housewife, and Emelda West, an elderly woman, have complained for years about the health hazards posed by their town’s industrial plants. They learn that an international conglomerate plans to build another plant and they are outraged. A town meeting is called. At the meeting, plant executives deny health problems, emphasize new jobs, and receive the town’s support. The relentless women petition hundreds of organizations for help. Requests are denied. In an effort to fight for what they believe, the two women continue their efforts at the risk of destroying their own personal lives. Will the town learn the truth about the hazards that are making their people sick... before it’s too late? Based on a true story. Drama. 92 Minutes.
