A small company town in northwestern Montana is beset by the worst case of a widespread toxic contaminant in U.S. history. For decades, the corporate conglomerate W. R. Grace knew what the residents of Libby did not: that they were being exposed to a deadly form of asbestos. All the while, the company allowed the spread of the contaminant all over the town - in the school grounds, the Little League baseball field, and in countless homes and yards. Now, the U.S. government has determined that nearly one quarter of the residents have some form of asbestos-related lung abnormality, and hundreds have already died of asbestos-related causes. Libby, Montana is the story of the American dream gone horribly wrong. Libby, Montana was broadcast on the national PBS Series, POV/The American Documentary and nominated for a national News and Documentary Emmy Award.
