This is the story of Sasha and Lydia, two teenagers who live in two small Belarusian village not far from Chernobyl, where a nuclear catastrophe occurred. They did not witness the Disaster, yet they live in a new era, that of post-Chernobyl. They grew up near the Exclusion Zone - one could say it even raised them to live in perfect harmony with a truly unique and mysterious world, full of life yet death, distorted in time. Nonetheless, these two have chosen different paths – not seeing any means of escape, Sasha decided to commit suicide, while Lydia tries to continue her life, aiming to understand the myth that led Sacha, her boyfriend, to a dead-end.
