Synopsis

What would you do if you got a check for $20,000 from a foreign Government? Would you cash it right away? Would you want to know why?

Gagetown follows Daniel Feighery’s personal journey to discover why his sister, a lifelong New Yorker, received a $20,000 check from the Canadian Government for Agent Orange exposure.

Daniel follows an unlikely team of widows, veterans, and scientists as they embark on a mission to win justice from the Canadian Government.

The film also investigates the science of pesticides, and finds disturbing links between the Agent Orange that killed thousands, and health epidemics today: rising levels of allergies, infertility, and cancer.

The Government wants us to think this is science fiction. This is reality. This is Gagetown.
