A small Norwegian town is banking on its medicinal baths to bring prosperity. But its economic growth and moral health are threatened when Dr. Thomas Stockmann uncovers a toxic secret that pits him against his brother, Mayor Peter Stockmann. In Ibsen's thrilling political masterpiece, a family in power struggles over its obligations to each other and to society: who is the enemy of the people, and who is their benefactor?
