Radium Girls follows teen sisters Bessie and Jo Cavallo, who dream of Hollywood and Egyptian pyramids as they paint luminous watch dials at the American Radium factory in 1920s New Jersey. When Jo (Emmy and Golden Globe nominee Joey King, “The Act,” The Kissing Booth) loses a tooth, Bessie’s (Abby Quinn, “Mad About You” reboot, Little Women) world is turned upside down as a mystery slowly unravels. She discovers a corporate cover-up and, in a radical coming-of-age story, Bessie and the Radium Girls decide to take on American Radium. Based on true events, the national sensation following the case of the Radium Girls ultimately led to significant and lasting impact in the area of workplace health and safety and the study of radioactivity. Radium Girls marks the feature directorial debuts of Emmy-winning and Academy-Award nominated producer Lydia Dean Pilcher and filmmaker Ginny Mohler, who co-wrote the award-winning original screenplay with Brittany Shaw.
