There's not a lot to do in Brightwood, especially if you're a kid. Businesses are closing and people are moving away, because when you live in Brightwood you have a better than average chance of dying of cancer. Jake (Jordan Dulieu) lost his dad that way two years ago, so now it's just him, his rebellious older brother Mike (Harrison Saunders), and their mother Jennifer (Beth Champion). But things are about to change drastically, because the EPA has just ridden into town! Actually, they've sent Dr. Tansy (Christopher Gabardi), who's just arrived with his daughter Abbie (Annabel Wolfe).
