Into Eternity follows the digging and pre-implementation of the Onkalo nuclear waste repository in Olkiluoto, Finland. Director Michael Madsen questions Onkalo's intended eternal existence, addressing a remotely future audience. More importantly, this documentary raises the question of the responsibility of the authorities to ensure compliance with the relatively new safety legislation, as well as the principles at the core of nuclear waste management.
