Steve McQueen (The Getaway, Bullitt) stars as an idealistic, small-town doctor who discovers that the local hot springs, which the townsfolk market for their "medicinal" effects to drive up tourism, are polluted by runoff from the local tanning mill. The town leaders fear that the cost of cleaning up the toxic waste, and the resultant drop in tourism if the news got out, would hurt the town, so it's up to the doctor to spearhead the battle and protect the town's land and residents. Co-starring Academy Award-nominee Charles Durning (Tootsie), Bibi Andersson (Persona, I Never Promised You a Rose Garden) and Richard Dysart (TV's L.A. Law, War and Rememberance). From the Henrik Ibsen play, and adapted by Pulitzer Prize-winner Arthur Miller (Death of a Salesman, The Crucible).
