A group of activists try to advocate about the benefits of nuclear energy in Atomic Hope: Inside of Pro Nuclear Movement. Fossil fuel currently accounts for 83% of global energy use and the demand is expected to double or triple over the next century. With renewal sources of energy such as wind or solar being unreliable, a group of activists have emerged, who are trying to get the general public to rethink their fears surrounding nuclear energy, which is one of the best sources of carbon-free power.

Atomic Hope: Inside of Pro Nuclear Movement is a documentary directed by Frankie Fenton about the growing movement of activists who believe that nuclear energy is the best way to curb the effects of climate change. However, the major obstacle for these activists in the fear of nuclear energy caused by disasters such as Chernobyl, to the point where these activists are often excluded from environmental marches and gatherings.

There are actually some very good arguments made in Atomic Hope about the benefits of nuclear energy, with the positives often outweighing the negatives that undoubtedly still remain. In fact, it's the continued stigma against nuclear energy that is the biggest obstacle for these activists and if anything, hopefully Atomic Hope ends up being a documentary that enlightens the masses on a possible solution to climate change that has been around for the past 70 years.
