Ellie, a student, rents the only room she can afford near her university. But the place turns out to have a colony of flies and a slightly pungent smell. She finds the flies’ behaviour odd and very distracting. Frustrated by her landlord’s refusal to help, she complains to the city.

Dmytro, an 89-year-old ex-miner who refused to move away from an abandoned Uranium mine, knows he must reveal his secret to Naomie and Michael, the two journalists who have come up north to interview him. However, he is reluctant to do so and hopes the two will leave Fission City before events beyond his control force them into the same choices he had to make. But even after Dmytro tries to tell Naomie that he is not alone, she refuses to believe him.

Dmytro, an 89-year-old ex-miner who refused to leave an abandoned Uranium mine site, tells his story to a young journalist hoping to launch her career. However, the reason Dmytro has lived alone for over forty years is not that he is a hermit; he had no choice if he wanted humanity to survive.
