Summary
Almost immediately following World War II, the U.S. Navy began a series of atomic bomb tests on the Bikini Islands in the Pacific. This was to be a major media event designed to formally present the atomic bomb to the world. Thousands of sailors were exposed to heavy doses of radiation and the entire native population of Bikini was uprooted. This documentary tells the story of America's first unclassified testing of the atom bomb through the words of eye-witnesses and archival footage
