Additional Info

Len Cariou and Stephen Lang starred on Broadway in this history-making play as Joe, a successful businessman and pillar of society whose chickens come home to roost in the form of Lou, a deranged Vietnam War buddy. During their confrontation, Joe learns that his daughter is not his daughter and the terrible secret of his past is exposed: his climb up the ladder of success began when he and Lou illegally dumped barrels and barrels of toxic waste over the bluff above town, poisoning the water supply. Lou kills himself, leaving Joe and his family to face the consequences of irresponsibility.
