In July 1945, the first nuclear weapon was tested and was a success. Three weeks later, the balance of the world underwent a radical and definitive shift. To convince Japan and the rest of the world of the power of the United States, Truman had two bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Arthur Mac Caig’s film gives an inside look at the most deadly atomic adventure ever known, including interviews with the story’s key players: Robert Wilson, Edward Teller and Robert Oppenheimer under the orders of General Groves.
