’The safest nuclear power plant worldwide’ describes the bizzare everyday life of people
Living and working at the nuclear power plant in Zwentendorf, Austria. Since 1978 the plant has been ready for operation. Shortly before it was set to open, popular vote prevented the start of the plant - it was never put to use until today.

What raises huge concerns in the minds of people, especially in the case of Fukushima, is nothing particularly extraordinary in this cosmos. The scene is unimaginable: a primary school in the old office building of the nuclear power plant, parties in its cottage front yard, tourists holidaying on the Donau and eating Wiener Schnitzel with view of the plant and Greenpeace practicing climbing for real operations on active plants in Europe. The most important person of all is the caretaker Johann Fleischer, who has a positive opinion of nuclear power and a job like a pope: unique and one of a kind worldwide. This nuclear power plant doesn’t divide fuel elements, it brings people of different personalities and opinions together. In an odd way.
