An emotional debate over a proposed uranium mill in southwestern Colorado — the first to be built in the US in 30 years — pits a population desperate for jobs and financial stability against an environmental group based in nearby Telluride, an upscale resort town. Uranium Drive-In combines a discussion of what constitutes sustainable energy in the US today with the personal stories of people directly affected by the mill. The film follows three main characters: Tami Lowrance, mayor of Naturita and strong proponent of development; Ayngel Overson, struggling mother of four who longs for the survival of her town but has mixed feelings about the mill; and Jennifer Thurston, an environmental activist fighting to stop the project. This character-driven story offers no easy answers but aims instead to highlight the personal experiences behind this nuanced and complex issue.
