What will Canada do with its enormous stockpile of deadly radioactive waste? Currently, many small communities throughout Ontario are considering burying it underneath their borders and close to Lake Huron and Lake Superior. When local residents learn about this plan, it sets off a firestorm between those who fear the risks and those who embrace the opportunity.

"Nuclear Hope" aims to provide some thoughtful discussion to one of humanity’s greatest dilemmas. How do you effectively deal with the most toxic substance the earth has to give? In most cases, important discussions related to nuclear power are often reduced to simple “pro” and “con” perspectives with little regard for the true complexity of the issues at hand. "Nuclear Hope" attempts to move beyond these simplistic perspectives by considering multiple perspectives of this complex issue and allow the audience to make their own decisions.
