News Summary: Movie tells of worker's cancer fightOctober 10, 2013 @ 12:32 pm
(AP) - HAPPY ENDING? A movie funded by donations from thousands of people has highlighted the battle of a Samsung factory worker's family to win compensation for her death from leukemia in the face of media indifference and corporate obstruction.
ABOUT THE MOVIE: "Another Family" is a fictional account based on the life of Hwang Yu-mi, who died aged 23 from leukemia in 2007, four years after joining Samsung's chip factory in Yongin, South Korea.
RARE EXCEPTION: Of three dozen Samsung employees who last year sought compensation for diseases allegedly caused by Samsung, only two won compensation, according to an attorney.
