In 1984, the Swedish mining company Boliden had toxic waste shipped to Chile, where it was supposed to be properly processed. In reality, some of the waste was dumped on the outskirts of the desert town of Arica. The consequences were severe: in the years that followed, residents developed cancer and many babies were born with birth defects.

Press:

"The film (...) effectively alternates between more informative parts describing facts and points of view, beautiful aerial shots accompanied by a lucid voice-over narration, important testimonies recorded in and outside of the courts, and direct accounts of the disaster's victims." - Cineurope
