OVERVIEW

Brief Synopsis

A television movie concerning the guilt felt by a successful neurologist who must deal with the effects of his involvement with nuclear testing at Camp Mercury, Nevada, 20 years earlier. Based on the true experiences of American soldiers who unknowingly served their country as "guinea pigs" for atomic testing. The lack of knowledge about radiation and the unwillingness by the government to recognize its responsibility to the victims of the testing is also explored.
