An Enemy of the People follows Tom Stockmann, a geologist who discovers dangerous water pollution in the Springs, a highly anticipated resort that recently opened in his Norwegian town. In Tom’s mind, the path to a solution is clear: inform the public and close the resort to prevent a crisis. But gradually, he comes under fire – from his brother (the town’s mayor), to the press, to his neighbors and his own family – for wanting to publicize a problem that threatens to destroy the town’s economy and reputation. With ripped-from-the-headlines relevance, this high-intensity drama is a powerful investigation of ambition, integrity and the price we pay for truth.
