- Depicts the struggle of an African-American community in Louisiana's "cancer alley" to be relocated from under the shadow of a Shell chemical plant. Led by activist Margie Richard, the community tries to convince the corporate bosses that the plant is a health hazard. Others in town, especially Shell employees, feel the risk is overstated.
