Summary
In the early days of the Cold War, peace and prosperity reigned in America. In the aftermath of World War II, American citizens were assured by the government that the weapon used to defeat the Japanese would now secure the peace, but at what cost? Prison inmates, mentally retarded teenagers, and pregnant women were all exposed to radiation so scientists could study its effects. Above-ground testing in the Nevada desert exposed thousands of people to radiation clouds. This ABC News program introduces viewers to the people known as the "downwinders," and discovers why they have come to believe they are victims of one of the deadliest cover-ups in the nation's history
