Conway, this documentary lifts the curtain on pundits-for-hire paid by large corporations to cast doubt on scientific studies and spread confusion about a range of public threats, from toxic chemicals to climate change. The film explores the illusions created by these corporations in order distract the public from the harm their products create.
