Just after midnight, the last few pounds of air hiss out of a 10,290- ton oil train. Powered only by gravity, the runaway train descends. The fuel explodes, 47 are dead, incinerating downtown Lac-Mégantic. This was no accident. The series investigates one of the worst oil train tragedies in history with the help of the survivors who share their most intimate stories of lost loved ones and calls for tighter security regulations.
