Struggling to keep his marriage together after the death of his wife’s father, Anthony finds himself at the centre of an emergency when an accident on a Trident submarine throws the base into crisis. As the situation worsens old memories from childhood reach into the present, and Anthony begins to understand that it isn’t only radiation that has a half-life.
