The China Syndrome




It started as just another assignment. Reporter Kimberly Wells (Jane Fonda) and cameraman Richard Adams (Michael Douglas) were covering a daily routine at a Los Angeles power plant when the unthinkable occurred - a nuclear accident that could have wiped out Southern California. And Richard caught it all on tape. When their TV station refuses to air the footage, Wells and Adams recruit plant supervisor Jack Godell (Jack Lemmon) to expose the terrifying truth: the facility is a ticking bomb. But with millions of dollars at stake, company officials cannot let the story break. When the trio attempts to broadcast live from the plant's control room, the utility company does everything in its power to silence Godell permanently, as the world watches.
