Welcome to Love Canal - a neighbourhood in Niagara Falls, New York that infamously made headlines in the 70s after news surfaced that the community was built on a precarious foundation. Between the 1950s and 70s, over 20,000 tons of toxic waste were pumped into a landfill, just as suburban sprawl was taking over the surrounding area. As a result, hundreds of residents were unknowingly exposed to toxic chemicals in what was believed to be the safety of their own homes. In 1978, Love Canal became a household name. 35 years later, the community resonates with few. Many have forgotten, moved on, or abandoned the area. Yet some residents remain, unable to remove themselves from the area or the events that took place. This film explores the current state of Love Canal and the long-term effects of environmental disaster.
