Brian Dennehy (F/X movies, Gorky Park) is Don Sheppard, a chemical plant manager ordered to cut costs and sacrifice safety to keep up production. But when the plant starts leaking toxic waste into a nearby town and management tries to hush it up, Don decides to fight back. Cicely Tyson (A Man Called Adam) is Janet Framm, the city manager who tries to warn the town’s citizens of the possibility of a catastrophic accident, only to be silenced by the local politicians. Do they still have time to stop a toxic disaster from happening? Or is it inevitable? Kenneth McMillan (Dune) and Christine Ebersole (Black Sheep) co-star.
