This program documents the struggles of Grand Bois, Louisiana, as it sues Exxon for dumping toxic waste in a local waste dump, Campbell Wells. In 1994, Exxon dug up a waste site in Alabama and sent it to Grand Bois, knowing that it contained high levels of benzine. People in the town of Grand Bois believe that the toxic oil waste is poisoning them and their children.
