One of the most important corporations in the world has emitted a dangerous amount of polluting gases from its factories and into the atmosphere and this has caused hundreds of people to die due to what they have declared publicly to be "unknown circumstances". The lawyer denounces this company and tries to expose the heinous crimes it has indirectly committed. The disgraced company won't go down without a fight, however, and so they do everything they possibly can to destroy the lawyer's career and discredit him with slander and lies. This strategy forces Rufflo's character to risk his future, his family and even his own life in order to uncover the truth end this corrupt company's reign.
