Settled somewhere in nowhere in the south ural region in Russia, the film tells the story of people living in one of the most radioactive contaminated spots on earth. Unknown to a wide public, this region was repeatedly irradiated by different accident of the nuclear facility „Mayak“, which was the first plant for the production of fissile material for nuclear weapons in the Soviet Union and which is still in operation. Rather than an investigative flick, the filmmaker's attempt is to find a cinematic translation for a dangerous that is not perceptible nor visual and to capture the strenght of people who have to cope with it.
