Summary Life was peaceful in Kenya's coastal slum of Owino Uhuru until the smoke of an illegal lead-smelting plant polluted the soil and air. The plant that was operating at the heart of this poor community left a path of destruction in its wake: dead workers, hundreds of failed pregnancies and dozens of children suffering lifelong health effects of lead poisoning. They managed to get the factory closed, but Owino Uhuru remains contaminated today. Combining investigative journalism and social documentary, OWINO tells the story of survival of a resourceless community victim of the car battery recycling industry
