When the Cold War ended, the generations that lived through it were relieved to finally vanquish the specter of a mushroom cloud from their minds. But today, thousands of nuclear weapons in the United States and Russia remain on high-alert, still poised to destroy the planet.
In a globe-trotting journey through various perspectives on nuclear weapons, filmmaker Bud Ryan takes us from the Peace Museums of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, to the “Nuclear Science” museums of the United States; to the place that birthed the atomic bomb, (and cares for it still) the state of New Mexico. Featuring former U.S. Secretary of State George Shultz, author Gar Alperovitz, Japanese bomb survivors, and many others.
