This documentary covers the court room drama in the case of 12 Nicaraguan banana workers who sued the Dole Fruit Company over the harmful health effects caused by the use of banned pesticides.

For the first time, foreign agricultural workers are heard in a United States court in what has become one of the most controversial trials.

Cameras inside the court room and personal interviews take the audience directly to the story.

Approx. 60 min.
