The tragicomic true story of one of the 20th Century's greatest technological obsessions, the film reveals how the dream of cheap, clean and safe atomic energy has been kept alive through seven turbulent decades - and asks if it's time for those who still love nuclear power to accept that it really could be the end of the affair. Delving into the archives of the PR men, campaigners and journalists who’ve battled to tell the atomic story, this is a surprising and often funny cautionary tale about what can happen when a promised wonder-technology comes face to face with harsh political reality.
