NYC PREMIERE Nearly 40 years ago, a California law stipulated that furniture manufacturers make their products non-flammable to curb the damage of house fires. Because of the state’s large market share, products containing chemical flame retardants have since spread to the rest of the US and Canada.

In this provocative investigation, firefighters, scientists, activists, politicians and reporters band together to uncover the disturbing truth.
