    erin brockovich

    At the start of the film, the down-on-her-luck Erin Brockovich (Roberts) finds herself in dire financial straits after getting into a car accident. Despite the accident being the other driver's fault, her lawyer Ed Masry . fails to win her a settlement during the trial. With bills to pay and three children to feed, Erin puts herself at the mercy of her lawyer, and begs him for a job. Fortunately, Ed relents and Erin begins work at the law firm as a filing clerk. After working a few weeks at the firm, Erin comes across a real estate file containing medical records. With her curiosity piqued, Erin convinces Ed to allow her to investigate the connection, and she treks out to the desert town of Hinkley. There she meets Donna Jensen, a woman whose entire family has been stricken with serious medical problems. As Erin digs deeper into the medical histories of Donna and other residents of the town, she inadvertently discovers a corporate cover-up involving deaths linked to chromium-contaminated drinking water in the small town. Incensed by what she has found, Erin begins a crusade to make Pacific Gas & Electric accountable for the illness and death that they have caused. Driven by her own persistence and desire to seek justice for the townspeople, Erin goes door to door to sign up plaintiffs for a direct-action lawsuit against PG&E. However, not everyone shares Erin's enthusiasm to see justice done-- with PG&E being the largest employer in the area, Erin finds a number of townspeople leery of rocking the boat. Furthermore, there is some internal grumbling at the law firm, as a number of Erin's co-workers resent her outspoken personality and questionable style of dress. Finally, as a single mother, Erin finds it increasingly difficult to balance the demands of her work and her family-- the more time she spends on the road crusading, the more estranged she becomes from her children.
