  • This dramatic film is based on the true story of Karen Silkwood, a rank-and-file worker at a plutonium factory, who was accidentally exposed to a lethal dose of radiation. Historically, the company downplayed employee's complaints about radiation sickness, much to Karen's frustration. Her own ordeal made Karen an activist. When she was about to go public with evidence of the company's poor safety record, the corporate powers went to extreme lengths to ensure that Karen's story was never told.
