Description

Full Body Burden is the nonfiction work of Kristen Iversen’s experience growing up in Arvada, Colorado near Rocky Flats. Rocky Flats, once designated “the most contaminated site in America,” was a secret nuclear weapons plant responsible for the assembly of over 70,000 of plutonium triggers for nuclear bombs between 1952-1989. Full Body Burden follows Kristen’s life in Colorado and the lives of those impacted by the hidden truths of what was actually happening inside the Rock Flats facility.
