Chernobyl: 26 April 1986. On that day, Anya and Piotr get married. Then, an accident occurs at the power station. Piotr, a volunteer fireman, leaves to extinguish the flames. He never returns. Ten years later, the deserted town has become a no man’s land and a bizarre tourist attraction.

MUBI's take

The catastrophic Chernobyl nuclear accident, and its strange consequences, are the subject of this personal drama which toured film festivals worldwide. The before and after of a woman’s troubled life are explored in two parts: one during the 1986 disaster, the other set ten years later.
