Finkelmyer Industries is the largest employer in the small hamlet of Plainview. Over half of the town's residents work in the chemicals factory started by "Papa" Francis Finkelmyer. For seventy-five years, the Finkelmyer family has given back to the community through their many acts of philanthropy.
This idyllic setting is about to change. Unbenownst to plant Safety Officer, Stash Bunkovski, a dioxin holding tank is leaking into the town's water supply.Before long, anglers and the state Fish and Game Commission report that the once-plentiful trout living in Loyalhanna Creek are diseased or mutated.
Doctors' offices are soon filled with sick residents, most of them presenting with stomach ailments or quick-growing tumors.
Is this just an unfortunate industrial accident? Or are eco-terrorists to blame?
Can the EPA and Stash resolve the problem before Plainview becomes another Love Canal?
