Directed by Rebecca ZLOTOWSKI (Belle Epine)
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. They fight against their mutual forbidden love. 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, every day becoming a threat.
