This dramatic view of a nuclear accident focuses on a doctor and his family who are on vacation in a rural area and a local family they know. As these individuals are enjoying themselves, a speeding gasoline truck crashes into a caravan of trucks carrying nuclear waste in canisters, and the containers break open in the accident. After the powers-that-be realize what has happened, they seal off the contaminated area and spare not a minute in rounding up the villagers and summarily herding them into a church. Thus confined and unsure of when or how they are going to be released, the villagers become restive and decide to break out -- not an option the waiting military units are ready to accept.
