The scientific community from Los Alamos is preparing for the first testing of the atomic bomb in New Mexico. One of the main protagonists, a mature WOMAN who is invited to a TV show for an interview, pretends to be more personal than professional in an attempt to reveal the intimate side of scientific people. During this interview the WOMAN discovers that the INTERVIEWER is really a writer and both (WOMAN and INTERVIEWER) end up weaving a story of love and treachery as explosive as the historic preamble that launches the atomic bomb in Hiroshima and Nagasaki. This is the result, not exactly of the relationship between the two characters of that story: MARGARET and CHARLES, two successful scientist that despite their intense scientific careers, reveal their intimate limitations where their treachery conjugates with, perhaps, that visage of dirty dealing painted on the face of J. Robert Oppenheimer when he said, at the end of his life, "Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds." This all excludes with a secret lover of which we don't know whether or not is welcome, who makes the relationship between CHARLES and MARGARET explode and represents the majestic events of the biggest discovery for the destruction of our species. As Ricardo Garcia said about his play, "At its depths, perhaps "Manhattan Project" would be no more than a melodrama that the author and the interviewer disguise as a scientific dissertation due to matters of modesty."
