Synopsis

Roland Joffe's film explores the wartime race between America and Germany to develop the atomic bomb. Under the guidance of General Groves (Paul Newman) the American military continue their efforts to formulate the bomb, despite discovering that the enemy isn't working on a project such as theirs. J.Robert Oppenheimer (Dwight Shultz) is the genius working on the project who is torn between scientific objectivity and ethics. Their conflicts are representative of the double edged situation which the authorities are in; the fear that the enemy will get there first and the horror at the consequences should one of these bombs go off.
