Lionsgate is getting explosive June 19!
Everyone knows that teenagers are smarter than adults, and if given a chance the kids could save the world--if they don't blow it to bits first. The Manhattan Project tells of how 16-year-old Paul Stephens (Christopher Collet) tries to alert his community to the dangers of nuclear energy. Dr. John Mathewson (John Lithgow), a doctor in a pharmaceutical research plant wherein covert plutonium experiments are taking place, is the boy friend of Stephens' mom (Jill Eikenberry). While Lithgow is romantically occupied, Stephens and his girl (Cynthia Nixon) steal the plutonium and construct their own atomic bomb.
