Based on the book by W. Eugene Smith and his wife which pits Smith against a powerful corporation responsible for poisoning the people of Minamata, a Japanese fishing village, in 1971. With the glory days of World War II far behind him, Smith has become a recluse, disconnected from society and his career. But an old friend and a commission from “Life Magazine” editor Ralph Graves convince Smith to journey back to Japan to expose a big story: the devastating annihilation of a coastal community, victims of corporate greed and complicit local police and government.
