    • Synopsis
    • The mines of Johannesburg, or Jozi, have produced a third of all the gold mined in human history. Now the mines are falling apart and the city is confronted by an environmental nightmare: Tons of radioactive waste polluting the air and turning water into poisonous Acid Mine Drainage. In true Erin Brockovich style, Mariette is on a mission to uncover the truth about Jozi’s mine waste and force the gold industry to take responsibility.
