Very well made film.
29 April 2005 | by See all my reviews

Saw this at the USA Film Festival in Dallas. The film shows conclusively that the WR Grace Company knew for years about how dangerous the conditions in its mining operation were, but they did nothing to warn their employees. When the EPA came in and examined the workers, and their homes and families, the extent of the asbestos exposure was extremely high, descending through three generations. When it became clear that the company would be held liable, they declared bankruptcy, after apparently shuffling their assets off to another entity to protect their billion dollar profits. We also see the frustration of employees of government agencies, who must balance the well being of people they have come to regard as friends against the realities of their budget constraints.
