Gary is a man with a criminal past. The only job he can get is as waste disposal personnel at a nuclear power plant. A hard and bad job where the fear of a radioactive dose always hangs in the air. But already the first day he meets Karole, who in turn is already engaged to an older colleague. A radioactive triangle drama starts where not even the overalls can protect Gary from the forbidden attraction. Kulturnyheternas Jane Magnusson thinks that "Grand Central is both a love story and a fierce criticism of the French labor market and the country's nuclear policy" while the Göteborgsposten's Hannes Dükler writes that the love story is "well-played with subtle gestures."
