As a rule, the nuclear industry is associated with Chernobyl, disaster, horrors and nightmares. But many years have gone by since the disaster, and the whole world has accepted the idea that while the future of this planet lies behind the nuclear industry, we know practically nothing about it. One of my aims was to change this negative perception of the ‘nuclear' subject by overriding it with a simple, ironic, warm, human story about love and the peaceful atom. Even today many believe that nuclear scientists are obsessive suicides, busy bare-handedly shoving their pockets full of plutonium. And I wanted to present people who work on nuclear power plants as interesting individuals with their own perception of the surrounding world, their own personal problems and their own internal concept of happiness.
