There is a nuclear power plant in Zwentendorf, Austria. Since 1978 the plant has been ready for operation. Shortly before it’s official opening popular protest prevented the start up of the plant – it was never put to use until today. There is a primary school in the unused office buildings, parties are held in the front yard, tourists holiday nearby and eat wiener schnitzel, Greenpeace practices abseiling down its chimney in readiness for real protest operations on active plants in Europe. At the centre of it all is the caretaker Johann Fleischer. He oversees the vast complex, alone, in what must be one of the most unique jobs in the world.
