Synopsis

Moving, unforgettable living witnesses who survived two of the world's most momentous radiation crises: Nagasaki in 1945, Fukushima in 2011. interlaced with nuclear experts and archival footage, some shocking, illuminating the largely unrecognized connection between nuclear weapons and nuclear power, and the growing global movements to abolish both.

"Taking on an immense topic in a compact, emotional documentary...Lumping warheads in with the nuclear-power industry makes for an all-or-nothing tone here, but it’s all in keeping with the film’s uncompromising anti-nuke stance. Recommended." —Video Librarian.

It raises profound questions about war,American foreign policy, technological failure, the courage to survive and the importance of taking positive actions to prevent future nuclear disasters.

"...not only very powerful but imperative viewing for younger generations that have no concept of what “nuclear” means." —Dr. Helen Caldicott, Nuclear Policy Research Institute founder
