This film explores the problem of a hundred million gallons of radioactive sludge left over from the Cold War. Part graphic novel and part observational essay, the film moves from a nuclear weapons facility in South Carolina where toxic swamps have led to radioactive animals; to a deep underground burial site in New Mexico; to Fukushima, Japan, where a triple meltdown occurred at the Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant. This film premiered on PBS's Independent Lens in January 2017.
