In a landmark trial in Mississippi, a jury returns a shocking verdict against the giant Krane chemical company: its dumping of toxic waste has caused the worst cancer cluster in history.
The verdict is a triumph for Wes and Mary Grace Payton, the small husband-and-wife legal team who have fought Krane for years. Now nothing stands in the way of million-dollar settlements for all of Krane's victims.
Except for one thing: the appeal.
Krane's billionaire owner has decided not one cent will be paid to any of the plaintiffs. Instead he will buy himself some justice at the Supreme Court. Instead of a victory, the biggest legal battle of their lives is just beginning for the Paytons and their clients.
