Descriptions The Manhattan Project
Named after the World War II-era program, the plot revolves around a gifted high school student who decides to construct a nuclear bomb for a national science fair. The film’s underlying theme involves the Cold War of the 1980s when government secrecy and mutually assured destruction were key political and military issues.
Paul Stevens’ high school science project has gotten a little out of hand. He just built an atomic bomb. Now he’s got 11 hours to make sure it doesn’t work.
