This is the story of two ordinary people, Helen Steel and Dave Morris, who were sued by McDonalds in 1990 for merely distributing a leaflet that asked, "What's Wrong with McDonalds?" They took on the corporate juggernaut and fought a 15 year battle in the English court system. The trial drew worldwide attention as activists and media alike focused on the unlikely couple that proved a match for McDonalds.
