These Shining Lives
Humble High School
Humble High School - Humble, TX
a comedy-drama by Melanie Marnich. Based on the true story of the women who worked for The Radium Dial Company in the 1920s and '30s, this 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 its most transcendent sense, as they refuse to allow the company that stole their health to kill their spirits—or endanger the lives of those who come after them.
