Storyline

Dr. Alexander Brown (Martin Sheen) arrives in Las Vegas, awarded for his recent medical invention. An ex-G.I. tells Brown he was a test subject during the 1950's, exposed to atomic bomb radiation in the Nevada desert-- will Brown help the man uncover the truth? In 1950's Nevada, Brown (played by Emilio Estevez) is a young psychiatrist and a guest of the U.S. Army, where soldiers were routinely exposed to excessive radiation. The young Brown and a colleague interview soldiers, who show their ignorance and insouciance in the face of this danger. The movie intercuts scenes between the young Alexander Brown and older Alexander Brown, some thirty years after the nuclear tests. Will the decorated psychiatrist finally speak out on the atrocity he witnessed? Written by veloc <velo_00@yahoo.com>

Terrible and brilliant
21 May 2001 | by (Kiruna, Sweden) – See all my reviews

It's a movie that goes strait to your heart.A brilliant movie about a terrible thing. I was 18 when I saw it. It frightened me, but I couldn't stop watching. When the movie was over I was stunned, I couldn't even think about going to sleep. It took me an hour to react and when I did I cried for about 30 min. My advise is that you should see this movie if you get the chance. Let us learn from the past so that it will never ever happen again.
