Gary is young. He belongs to those people who don’t expect anything from anyone. He joins a nuclear power station, convinced to find a team there, sense to his life, money and heroes. To earn his money, he’s not afraid to become a «jumper», to approach the nuclear reactor as near as possible in areas where radioactivity is the most dangerous. But, the team involves Karole as well, the wife of one of the others. When Gary reaches the limit of acceptable radiation levels, he decides to lie, being afraid he will be separated from her. He starts playing a deadly game. “The plant itself becomes virtually a living, breathing character itself under zlotowski’s watchful eye, with much time devoted to day-to-day particulars, and how the seemingly ironclad rules can be bent by those clever or desperate enough to do so. Together with cinematographer George lechaptois, zlotowski creates a series of striking visual contrasts, shooting in smooth, almost clinical Hd for the plant interiors and denser, more lyrical 35mm for all other scenes.” (Scott Foundas)

In the presence of Rebecca Zlotowski, Gabriele Kranzelbinder (producer) and Marie Tappero (production manager).
