Synopsis
  • A Soviet family searching for a modest paradise is swept into an
    immense disaster. This magically animated film combines drawing,
    photography and documentary video to capture the surreal emotions of
    the too-real tragedy: Chernobyl 1986.
    Leonid grew up in the village next to the reactor. The catastrophe broke
    his life, ruined his health, and threatened his unborn child. Yet his work
    takes him right into the contaminated zone. This animated film tells his
    story.
    The film comprehends the development of this world disaster through the
    destiny of the protagonist and his family. The small episodes reconstruct
    the emotional dimension of the tragedy: The children which run to the
    burning reactor, getting a look on the spectacular drama, the
    unsuspecting village people in the surrounded area, the animals which
    remain behind after the evacuation, and the helpless tries of mankind to
    eliminate the follows of the nuclear disaster, accompanied with the
    faceless, communist Sovjet system.
    After all there is a happy end: The triumph of life over the catastrophe.
