A group of allegedly mistreated food workers and their attorney battle a giant corporation in this gripping 2009 documentary. Even when Dole Foods stopped using a pesticide in America because it was shown to potentially cause infertility, they continued to spray it in Nicaragua. Filmmaker Fredrik Gertten follows the experience of 12 local workers who hired Cuban-American attorney Juan Dominguez to represent them in their suit against Dole in this David vs. Goliath story.
