This one hour documentary is about a struggle between a tiny Louisiana town and one of the biggest industries on earth - oil. Every day trucks and barges dump tons of oil field waste into giant open pits in a waste disposal site in Grand Bois, Louisiana. When parents found their children were getting sick with symptoms the local doctors couldn't explain, they hired a lawyer and began to fight for their lives.
