Following a devastating diagnosis of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, Bay Area groundskeeper Dewayne “Lee” Johnson began to question if his terminal illness was rooted in his exposure to Roundup, a popular herbicide widely used by agricultural workers, landscapers, and suburban homeowners. When the World Health Organization determined that the product is likely carcinogenic to humans and harmful to our ecosystems, Johnson became the unlikely face of a fierce legal battle to hold the agrochemical giant Monsanto accountable for their negligence and corruption. Deftly contextualizing Johnson’s personal journey within the larger global environmental crisis, celebrated documentarian Jennifer Baichwal incisively examines our society’s fraught relationship with the natural world in this thrilling David vs. Goliath fight for justice.
