A monster sails the seas, carrying the threat of atomic catastrophe on the one hand and of a potential oil slick in the other. This is how a group of worried ecologists perceives the nuclear powered giant oil tanker Gargantua, which they soon nickname Leviathan. But in the end, this evil creature comes out to be a double blessing: first because of the unexpected virtues of atomic desintagretion, and secondly, because of the unpredictable carateristic of the slimy poison it holds in its side.
