Catherine and her friends are the lucky ones, chosen to work the lucrative and glamorous job of Dial Painters at the prestigious Radium Dial Company in post-World War I Chicago; but when they begin to develop mysterious symptoms, who will help them? What’s more, who will believe them?
Theirs is a story of survival, love, and friendship in the most transcendent sense, as they refuse to allow the company that stole their health to kill their spirits- or endanger the lives of those who come after them.
