This is the true story of Victor DeNoble, one of the most important and influential whistleblowers of all time. In the ‘80s, DeNoble was a research scientist at a major tobacco company, where he was tasked with finding a substitute for nicotine that would not cause heart attacks. He succeeded, but in the process, he proved something that the industry had been denying for years; that cigarettes were addictive. He also uncovered a new addictive ingredient setting off a chain of events that still reverberates today.
