Plot Summary
One of the biggest problems facing countries who rely on nuclear energy is what to do with the highly toxic radioactive waste. In 1970, Finland began construction of a massive underground bunker designed to safely store its nuclear waste until it decays and becomes safe -- a process that takes 100,000 years. Through interviews with leading Finnish scientists and researchers, director Michael Madsen explores the consequences of nuclear energy and human fallibility.

    Elizabeth Weitzman New York Daily News

    Unfortunately, Madsen (a Danish filmmaker, not the American actor) has an approach to this rich topic that is repetitive and simplistic, as if he wasn't quite sure how to fill out even a brief feature. show more

    V.A. Musetto New York Post

    Madsen interviews experts galore, but few seem to know what's going to happen with this project in the next decade -- let alone 100,000 years. show more
