Is it tragic exploitation, faulty science, or rampant consumerism?  We give voice to this amazing true story! You decide.
 

In 1926 radium was a miracle cure, Madame Curie an international celebrity, and luminous watches all the rage—until the girls who painted them began to fall ill with a mysterious disease.  Radium Girls traces the efforts of Grace Fryer, a dial painter, as she battles the U.S. Radium Corporation and her own family and friends, who fear that her campaign for justice will backfire.
