A news reporter (Jane Fonda) and her cameraman (Michael Douglas) are unintentional witnesses to a SCRAM incident, an emergency core shutdown procedure at a nuclear power plant in California. The crew prevents a catastrophe, but the plant supervisor (Jack Lemmon) begins to suspect the plant is in violation of safety standards, and tries desperately to bring it to the attention of the public, fearing that another SCRAM incident will produce an atomic disaster.
An emergency response called a SCRAM is designed to stop nuclear fission, or the continuous splitting of uranium atoms that release heat and generate power inside a reactor. ... Radioactive fuel melted through the different layers of protection in the reactor building, releasing radiation into the environment.
