Synopsis: In The Dark Truth an ex-CIA op-turned political talk show host is hired by a corporate whistle blower to expose her company's cover-up of a massacre in a South American village. The film draws attention to man's inhumanity and unconscious actions against the environment and questions if there is a moral and ethical obligation when talking about boundaries, borders and human interaction. With the ever-increasing depletion of earth's natural resource of water serving as the backdrop, a multi-national corporation disregards basic human needs that result in widespread illness and a people's uprising. The distress causes unlikely allies to conspire and seek redemption for past deeds and the greater good.
