Biologist Sandra Steingraber defines “understanding the public story of cancer” as her life’s work. She calls public attention to the role of environmental pollutants in causing cancer even as she confronts her own diagnosis with the disease in a compelling environmental documentary that interrelates the personal, the scientific, and the political.
