Summary
Bananas!* is a courtroom drama that examines the intricacies and injustices of the global politics of food by focusing on a landmark and highly controversial legal case pitting a dozen Nicaraguan banana plantation workers against Dole Food Company over the alleged usage of a banned pesticide that causes sterilization. Central to both the film and the case is Juan "Accidentes" Dominguez, a Los Angeles-based personal injury attorney who is facing the biggest and most challenging case of his career. At stake in this case are the futures of generations of workers and their families as well as the culture of multinational business. If successful, the case could rock the economic foundations of Dole and open U.S. courts to other global victims, representing a new day in international justice
