Lifetime describes the film as “the gripping retelling of a crisis that shook a nation and shines a light on the whistleblowers who exposed the biggest environmental scandal of our generation.”

The film shines a light on four women, Iza (Latifah) Nayyirah (Scott) along with Leanna and Melissa played by Betsy Brandt and Marin Ireland who all experience the effects of the lead infested water and challenge city officials to rectify their life-altering mistake.
