Summary The effects of the US nuclear tests on the lives of the inhabitants of the Marshall Islands is revealed. The film combines Defence Department footage of the Bravo Test of 1954 with contemporary film and interviews with the people of Rongelap who were not evacuated during the tests and consequently became unwitting participants in an experiment carried out and covered up by the Americans.
