Filmmaker Mary Alice McMillan explores the geography of her family’s past to learn why every woman in her family has developed breast cancer and where her own breast cancer-related genetic mutation may have originated. Her mom and aunt join her on a journey back to their birthplace in Niagara Falls, New York, just blocks away from the Love Canal Superfund site.
MAPPING LOVE brings the viewer along on this intimate and sometimes-infuriating journey as these women wrestle with the generational effects of a massive environmental disaster, prove the resilience of their family, and make life-altering decisions about their health.
