In this classic detective story, investigative filmmaker Cullen Hoback travels to West Virginia to uncover the truth behind a massive chemical spill that left 300,000 people without drinking water for months. But when Hoback discovers an obscene collusion between chemical corporations and the highest levels of government, the investigation spirals in a terrifying direction, and we learn the frightening truth about what lies upstream of us all.



“a quietly devastating documentary that's all the more attention-grabbing for being such a scrupulously restrained and slickly polished piece of work”—Variety

“Couldn't be more timely.”—Indiewire
