As a young boy, Earle Reynolds had a dream to build and sail a boat around the world.

He got the chance decades later when, in 1950, the National Academy of Science invited him to research the effects of radiation on Hiroshima's children. Reynolds and his family embarked on a journey that would change their lives forever.

The Forbidden Voyage was produced in 1998.
