Plot Summary:

"Silent Spring of Rachel Carson," a biopic about the crusading environmentalist. The movie will focus on the five years that Carson struggled to report and write her seminal 1962 book "Silent Spring," which argued that pesticides were harming the environment by killing animals and birds and affecting humans. Carson, who died of breast cancer in 1964, was attacked by the chemical industry even as her book became a best-seller and she appeared at congressional hearings that paved the way for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. In 1980, she was posthumously awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
