Sandra Steingraber, hailed by Rolling Stone magazine as a “toxic avenger” debates the gas industry, delivers fiery speeches, and marches alongside other protestors, often at great cost to her personal life and family’s well being. In December 2014, New York’s Governor announced a permanent ban on fracking. During this dramatic moment, Sandra tearfully listens to the announcement with other anti-fracking activists and hears government officials repeating her health-based arguments for a ban.
