Young men are dying of kidney failure. The thing they have in common? They all work in the cane fields with little or no protection, breathing in chemical pesticides every day. The widows they leave behind are fighting a merciless battle against their employer, Pellas, who manufactures of the world famous Flor de Cana rum. Pellas has so far refused to give any information about the chemicals being used in its fields.
