In 1945, DuPont introduced Teflon to the marketplace and changed millions of American households. Today, a biopersistent chemical used in the creation of Teflon products (known as C8) can also be found in the bloodstream of 99% of all Americans. Investigating one of the biggest environmental scandals of our time, a group of citizens in West Virginia take on DuPont after they discover it has knowingly been dumping this toxic chemical into the drinking water supply. Directors Stephanie Soechtig and Jeremy Seifert deliver a compelling and ultimately terrifying investigative documentary that will make you question everything in your kitchen.
