Kurosaki masterfully explores the beauty and terror of scientific progress, focusing on the months before the U.S. dropped bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. A group of young male researchers, led by Shu (Yagira Yuya), receive much-coveted bright-yellow uranium nitrate. Their goal: to achieve nuclear fission, or, as their boss Arakatsu (Kunimura Jun) states, “to unleash the power of the atom.” While their Japanese brothers and sisters are dying on the battlefield, our heroes race to beat the Russians and Americans, yet supplies are sparse, the pressure from authorities is immense, and their patience is beginning to run out.
