Sinopsis: A small town on the banks of the Danube and its hopeful citizens are about to embark on a bright new journey. Massive rusty cranes, foreign investors, and the joyful chants of cheerleaders carry the dream of a great nuclear future. Disturbed only by gigantic stinging mosquitoes, the townsfolk celebrate the atomic hurray by engraving the nuclear power plant logo on buildings and soup bowls. Amidst the apparent atomic prosperity lies a past that no-one wants to remember. The tales of characters whose lives intersect in a sinister past, a nuclear future and dreams of economic prosperity.
