A beloved American corporation with an explosive secret. A disgraced former journalist looking for redemption. A corporate executive with nothing left to lose. When a garment factory fire in Dhaka, Bangladesh claims the lives of hundreds of workers, mostly young women, a bystander captures a heart-stopping photograph: a teenage girl lying in the dirt, her body broken by a multi-story fall, and over her mouth a mask of fabric bearing the label of one of America's largest retailers, Presto Omnishops Corporation. When the photo goes viral, an investigation into the disaster sets the stage for a war in the courtroom and in the media that could transform the fashion industry across the globe.
