    The Agent Orange catastrophe did not end with the Vietnam War. Today, the world over, a primary chemical of the toxic defoliant controls weeds in farming, forestry, parks and playgrounds. It wreaks havoc on the human genome, causing deformed births and deadly cancers.
    In France, Tran To Nga is suing the American chemical industry for poisoning her in Vietnam, while Carol Van Strum crusades to expose the continued use of lethal herbicides in the United States.
    Incriminating documents mysteriously disappear. Activists are threatened. A helicopter technician secretly films the contamination of reservoirs, while a massive industrial cover-up goes on.
