A doctor discovers that het waters of the spa in his town are badly polluted and make visitors mortally ill. For the common good, he wants to publish his findings. He turns to the local council to demand action. 

His brother is the town’s mayor. He has second thoughts. Announcing the news has far-reaching economic consequences for the town. More importantly, the common man will be the one to bear the cost.

This wry comedy invokes searingly topical echoes of recent environmental scandals close to home. It mercilessly uncovers the manipulative machinery behind the scenes of decision-making powers, as well as the surreptitious whispers in the hallways. As usual, Olympique Dramatique gathers a well-balanced, rock-solid cast, with some promising young talent as well.
