All our lives we’ve been those kind of people, when we have a picnic or camping we don’t just clear up our own litter, we go around and pick up other peoples’ too […] that’s just our policy, leave a place cleaner than you found it.
Two British nuclear engineers, husband and wife, live near the seaside in a modest cottage assigned to them following a nearby nuclear disaster in the plant where they used to work. A former colleague drops by unexpectedly after 38 years, seemingly just to catch up, but it turns out she has a shocking proposal that not only puts a “past due” stamp on their own their lives, but has the power to affect the lives of generations to come.
