One third of the production price of the average banana is used simply to cover the cost of pesticides. All
over the world, banana plantation workers are suffering and dying from the effects of these pesticides. Juan Dominguez, a million-dollar personal injury lawyer in Los Angeles, is on his biggest case ever representing 12,000 Nicaraguan banana workers. Dole Food and Dow Chemicals are on trial. And history is about to be made.
