Indian Point Nuclear Power Plant looms just 35 miles from Times Square. With over 50 million people living close to the aging facility, its continued operation has the support of the plant’s operators and the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. At the same time it has stoked a great deal of controversy in the surrounding community, including a vocal anti-nuclear contingent concerned that the kind of disaster that happened at Japan’s Fukushima nuclear plant could happen here. In the brewing fight for clean energy and the catastrophic possibilities of government complacency on oversight, director Ivy Meeropol presents a balanced argument about the issues surrounding nuclear energy and offers a startling reality check for our uncertain nuclear future. Directed by Ivy Meeropol. Produced by Ivy Meeropol and Julie Goldman.
