"These Shining Lives" chronicles the strength and determination of women considered expendable in their day, exploring their true story and its continued resonance. Catherine and her friends are dying, it's true; but theirs is a story of survival in the most transcendent sense, as they refuse to allow the company that stole their health [Radium Dial Company] to kill their spirits - or endanger the lives of those who come after them. Based on a true story, These Shining Lives takes place in Chicago and Ottawa, Illinois in the 1920s and 30s.
