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.
