This documentary film provides information on the health endangering proximity of the petrochemical plant in the Mai-Liao Industrial Park to a primary school. Examinations have shown that many pupils carry metabolites of first grade carcinogens caused by VCM emissions. The imagery of the colour film demonstrates the omnipresence of the chemical plant. Panorama images prove its dimensions, and constantly smoking chimneys, shown in large format or in the background, clearly illustrate the environmental pollution caused by the plant.
