Summary It started as just another assignment. Reporter Kimberly Wells and cameraman Richard Adams were covering the daily routine at an Los Angeles power plant when the unthinkable occurred: a nuclear accidnet that could have wiped out Southern California. And Richard caught it all on tape. When their TV station refuses to air the footage, Wells and Adams recruit plant supervisor Jack Godell to expose the terrifying truth: the facility is a ticking bomb. But with millions of dollars at stake, company officials cannot let the story break. When the trio attempts to broadcast live from the plant's control room, the utility company does everything in its power to silence Godell permanently, as the world watches
