Gary is young, agile, a quick learner. He’s one of those who’s never been promised anything. After a succession of odd jobs, he’s taken on at a nuclear power plant.
There, amongst the reactors and their high doses of radioactivity, he finally finds what he’s been looking for: money, a team, a family.
But the team also includes Karole, Toni’s wife, with whom he falls in love. Forbidden love and radiation slowly contaminate Gary. Each day is menacing.
