Seit Bekanntwerden des Endstandorts der Wiederaufbearbeitungsanlage und den atompolitischen Absichten vollziehen sich Spaltprozesse unter den Bewohnern. Menschen äußern ihre ohnmächtige und kämpferische Wut Auge in Auge mit bewaffneten, schildbewehrten Polizisten inmitten von bürgerkriegsähnlichen Gefechten.
The film gives deep insight into the ecological destruction of rural areas; it depicts the nuclear energy policies linked with the construction of a reprocessing plant and it elucidates the peril to which the people are subjected from noxious emissions. In the course of this, the endangered population of the Upper Palatinate is clearly in the foreground with regard to its personal and political process of change. Former loyal citizens are transformed into cautious radicals. People express their rage helplessly and belligerently at home as well as face to face with armed, shield-protected policemen in the midst of civil warlike clashes.
