In a race against the Nazis to develop an atomic bomb, the USA assigned leading scientists from all over the world to The Manhattan Project. The project was an incredible scientific, engineering and manufacturing feat that would have everlasting global consequences.

This documentary examines the Manhattan Project through government files, archival footage and accounts of surviving members of the development team, including Paul Tibbets, pilot of the Enola Gay.

‘Enola Gay’ is the name of the plane flown by Tibbets to drop the bomb on Hiroshima in 1945.
