An estimated 42 people a year have been killed in Chicago by the Fisk and Crawford coal-burning plants, two of the oldest remaining in the US. Leila Mendez, who has lived 4 blocks from the Fisk since she was 9 years old, knew nothing about this until she herself got cancer. She has since worked tirelessly to shut down these plants, which she comes to realize disproportionately affect people of color. MONSTERS follows Leila over several years – through triumphs and setbacks, and above all is testimony to the power of hope.
