About Grand Central
Gary (Tahir Rahim) is a healthy young man and a quick learner. He doesn't have much regard for his own safety and his expectations in life have always been low. After a series of odd jobs, he finds what seems to be his ideal job as a decontamination contractor. He travels around to different nuclear power stations, carrying out dangerous but well-paid maintenance work and develops a rough, brotherly bond with his colleagues. Risking radiation poisoning on a daily basis, Gary has no qualms about rushing headlong into an affair with Karole (Lea Seydoux), a beautiful young woman who is also engaged to one of his colleagues. But they are less than discreet and soon Gary has more to worry about than just constantly monitoring his radiation levels.
