A groundbreaking investigative documentary that tells the story of Crossett, Arkansas, where a local pastor David Bouie galvanizes citizens against Georgia-Pacific, one of the nation’s largest paper mills and chemical plants owned by Koch Industries. It offers a rare look inside a small town ruled by a single company that has employed generations of the town’s residents while burdening them with massive pollution, sickness, and death. Company Town asks, what do you do when the company you work for and live next to is making you sick? This is the story of a modern-day David vs. Goliath.
