French love story about an aimless and unskilled worker (Tahar Rahim) who lands himself a job at a nuclear reactor. There, amongst the radioactivity, he finally finds what he's been looking for: money, a team, a family. But the team also includes a co-worker's wife (Léa Seydoux) with whom he falls in love. Forbidden love and radiation slowly contaminate him. Nominated for the Un Certain Regard Award at Cannes 2013.
