This film tells the story of a brave and stubborn factory worker in a chemical plant near beautiful Venice, who made it his life work to fight against a production process that kills people and destroysa unique environment. It’s the struggle of David against Goliath. Using interviews with family member and former co-workers, bringing together archives that tell the story of how the factory tha once offered a dream job to many became a nightmare for all, director Paolo Bonaldi draws the portrait of a man you have to admire and a justice you can’t help but hate.
