Synopsis
A look at how the world narrowly avoided "planetary engineering" at the hands of nuclear physicists determined to see the "great and violent" power of nuclear detonations not go to waste, a.k.a "Project Plowshare." Dig a new Panama Canal by a series of quick and easy nuclear blasts? Sure! Problem is, the fallout would cover the Earth with radioactive dust... Using eerie test footage from the American and Soviet archives plus interviews with the man himself, Dr. Edward Teller, co-inventor of the hydrogen bomb, this is not only a look at our "drift toward unparalleled catastrophe" (Einstein, 1946) but a scary look at the immense power of just a few men.
