More than 50 countries now possess weapons based on depleted uranium (DU). Experimentation and the consequences for civilians and military have been dramatic. We investigate the arguments pro and against a technology that toxic. For 20 years, scientists, doctors, veterans and activists have denounced the use of DU. On the opposite side the armament industry, lobbyists and nuclear authorities continue to minimize the risks.
Through archive documents, interviews and investigations, accompanied by key witnesses (victims, experts…) we aim to present a clearer picture of the issues and stakes linked to the use of DU. The film underlines the essential background and conflicting viewpoints, enabling viewers to make up their own minds about a subject that concerns us all.
