Storyline

On April 26, 1986, an inconceivable event happened and a nightmare scenario became horrific reality: the day reactor block 4 of the Chernobyl atomic power station exploded. In their attempts to contain the disaster, Russian firefighters were exposed to multiple deadly doses of radioactivity. Three weeks later almost all of them were dead. Very little information about the true extent of the radioactive contamination managed to find its way out to the public. Twenty years later, this vivid, moving documentary film, told from the personal perspective of the filmmaker, is a requiem for the often forgotten victims of the disaster and a caveat against putting blind trust in technological advancement.
