As soldiers return from new wars plagued by illness, disability, and post-traumatic stress; as government leadership fails and fresh environmental catastrophes evoke debate about corporate accountability; it is essential to illuminate struggles and lessons from the past.
Veterans exposed during the Vietnam war to Agent Orange/dioxin, who seek treatment for their children and themselves, are the principal subjects of this gripping documentary — an unsparing look at chemical warfare, herbicides, toxic waste, and the fraught yet enduring military-industrial complex.
Every issue raised in this historic film continues to resonate today.
