With the increasing use of asbestos in China, Russia and other countries, asbestos production has grown apace, so that 70% of the world population is now exposed to this carcinogenic material. Starting from the first court hearings in Turin involving the multinational Eternit, which now faces claims of having caused the death of nearly 30,000 former plant workers and among the local populace at Casale Monferrato, the film takes us to India and Brazil on an exploration into a multimillion dollar business managed by a lobby that holds sway over the policies of many countries.
