This documentary film tells the story of sculptor Tony Price, who has devoted his life to making modern works of art out of the discarded junk of the nuclear laboratory at Los Alamos, New Mexico. Using interviews with Price and with those who know him well, the film illustrates how he has purchased scrap parts from Los Alamos and turned them into representative and abstract statues, in addition to creating more practical things such as furniture and dishes from the parts. The film also explains Price’s negative view of technology and of nuclear weapons in particular and his hope that his artwork will make people think about nuclear problems. Numerous examples of his artwork are shown throughout the film.
