NotesThe film is set in Louisana in an area where there is heavy industry. A Japanese firm plans to build a petro-chemical plant. A woman, one of whose children has asthma, begins a campaign to stop the building of the plant. Her husband works in an associated industry and the plant will bring jobs. After a long, hard battle the campaign succeeds. This is not a Julia Roberts vehicle (cf. Erin Brocovitch) but it's probably closer to the truth. While worthy it is a little dull.
