Radium Girls

1925, New Jersey. Teenage sisters, Bessie and JO, dream of faraway places as they paint glow-in-the-dark watch dials at the American Radium Factory. But when Jo develops a life-threatening disease, Bessie is propelled into a radical coming-of-age as she stands up to the corporation and forces them to admit that they knowingly allowed the women to work with toxic radium.
