Jason Brady is a hot crusading Montreal TV reporter who learns of the biggest story of his career. A female social worker shows him the carnage happening to children due to the criminally negligent behaviour of a corporation concerning their handling of a deadly chemical called B.A.P. As he investigates, he finds that not only does he have to face the corporation's underhanded efforts to silence him, but also the turmoil with his own family as he gets so emotionally involved in the story and the social worker that he is alienating his wife. Eventually, events lead to a point that forces him to make sacrifices he could not anticipate.Written by

The video release of this title plays on the fact that it stars Barry Morse, who has lived in Canada for quite some time. The production of this film is very dated and on video looked more like a documentary in parts. Although the principle of the story is very good I can't help but feel I wish I hadn't spent the 1 hour and 15 minutes watching this, Barry Morse is hardly in it and the ending is dreadful. Over the end titles we get a spoken list of people who have died from poisonous gases and although this is indeed an extremely important issue the scene that follows is that "this story and its characters are entirely fictitious" making the whole thing seem a waste of time.
