Storyline

Karen Gay Silkwood, a heroic whistleblower, as an American chemical technician, labor union activist reporting corporate, Kerr-McGee Plutonium Plant practices in Cimarron, Okla. related to health and safety of workers in a nuclear facility. Silkwood died mysteriously, en-route to meet a New York Times reporter with tangible evidence that Kerr-McGee was poisoning their workers, she never made the meeting, obviously murdered to be kept silent. In 1986 her family settled a lawsuit for $1.5 million. All indications, she was murdered to silence her. In the ensuing litigation a witness for Silkwood alleged committed suicide before testifying. The elements of evil are transparent without looking to deep into the corporate veil. In the government response and tradition, Silkwood was alleged to have been a troublemaker but more importantly her reporters were accurate and had to be silenced.
