Based on the true story of young factory workers who begin a campaign for justice after being sickened by radium-laced paint on the job. It is a fast-moving theatrical ensemble piece about greed, wealth, the environment, science, and courage.
They held the power in their hands.
New Jersey. 1920s.
The Nuclear Age is here and evidence is everywhere, from the headlines to the home.
Young women with skilled fingers paint watch faces with radium paint to make the hands and digits glow.
The work is hard, but jobs are scarce, and a job's a job.
Unless that job is killing you.
