Tweetable Logline: The Love Canal cocktail: Mix three families with 22,000 tons of toxic chemicals. Shake well.
Elevator Pitch: Of the 80,000 chemicals in everyday use only 2% have been tested for their health effects on humans and yet we face a seemingly mysterious rise in cancers, asthma, autism. The Canal tells the story of how a community who saw the connection clearly and did something about it.

About the film: People, especially children, should not be exposed to toxic chemicals in everyday products or in waste streams but we all are, constantly. There is a direct link between exposure and cancer, childhood leukemia, asthma, autism, you name it. I hope this film inspires people to demand better and to demand change.
Current Status: We just launched our Indiegogo campaign to raise the finishing funds.
