Nightbreaker tells the story of Dr. Alexander Brown (Martin Sheen) who arrives in Las Vegas to be awarded for his recent medical invention.

An ex-G.I. tells Brown he was a test subject during the 1950s, exposed to atomic bomb radiation in the Nevada desert--will Brown help the man uncover the truth?

In 1950s Nevada, Brown (Emilio Estevez) is a young psychiatrist and a guest of the U.S. Army, where soldiers are routinely exposed to excessive radiation.

The young Brown and a colleague interview soldiers, who show their ignorance and insouciance in the face of this danger.

The movie intercuts scenes between the young Alexander Brown and older Alexander Brown, some thirty years after the nuclear tests.

Will the decorated psychiatrist finally speak out about the atrocity he witnessed?
