About 40 kilometers from Turin lies Saluggia, a small rural town which in the late 1950s became home to a nuclear research center, an experimental atomic reactor, and a reprocessing plant where methods were developed for recovering uranium and plutonium from spent nuclear fuels. Disastrous floods in 2000 made the site was no longer safe, yet a new repository for nuclear waste is nearing completion. Drawing on archive material, testimony from activists, local administrators, scientists and workers, the film reveals the risks of storing radioactive waste in an unsuitable area and the threats to the local water supply.
