Sixty-miles east of Reno, in the small military and ranching town of Fallon, Nevada, an unfathomable mystery is unfolding. In the span of just two years, fourteen children have been diagnosed with acute-lymphocytic leukemia, and no-one seems to know why. As the film unfolds, two children die and two more cases are discovered, as families square off with scientists, government bureaucrats and media opportunists who are occupied with everything it seems but the welfare of the children. Due to recent medical advances, for the first time in history, the town of Fallon may be able to provide much-needed answers to the impact environmental hazards can have on health. While kids undergo excruciating spinal taps and parents break down, the community is stretched to the breaking point. As the country gears up for war, military exercises at the Fallon naval air base increase, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention arrive to canvas the population. Is this the ultimate testing ground that will provide much-needed answers for the rest of the world, or the ultimate cover-up? Fallon, NV: Deadly Oasis leads the viewer into a charged landscape of questions_x001A_that we as a nation must have the courage to answer. Produced and Directed by Amie S. Willams in association with KLVX and ITVS.
