Summary
Erin Brockovich is a feisty young mother who convinces attorney Ed Masry to hire her and promptly stumbles upon a law case against a giant corporation for water pollution. Erin's determined to take on this powerful adversary even though no law firm has dared to do it before. The two begin a legal fight that will bring a small town to its feet and a huge company to its knees
