Can Tran To Nga force 24 American corporations to finally take responsibility for the Agent Orange catastrophe? Winning care and justice for the herbicide’s victims is Madame Tran’s last battle. But the illnesses that justify her lawsuit could kill Tran. This investigative documentary studies a vibrant nation in the aftermath of ecocide, tracing the decisions that enabled the deadliest use of chemicals in the history of warfare. Evidence uncovered with the exclusive cooperation of an Air Force whistle-blower document that the American corporations, government and military knew the herbicide would sicken, kill and deform, but chose to use it anyway.
