Contents Notes
"This environmental documentary examines the Tar Creek Superfund Site, a stretch of Oklahoma heartland that has long been profoundly damaged by zinc and lead mining. The piece looks back as far as 100 years into Tar Creek's history (when the U.S. government removed Native Americans from the land), and traces the many offenses that have been committed against the area and its people over the past century"--Carly Wray, All Movie Guide.
