All around the world, more than one million tons of discarded chemical weapons are lying underwater, near our coasts. 

From 1917 to 1970, armies systematically dumped these mortal poisons into oceans all over the world. Little by little, the active substances within are being released. Why did politicians and military commanders make this decision? What are the consequences on maritime life and on our health? 

This 2-year investigation explores the issue in all its dimensions and searches for solutions.
