surreal musical journey through the Chernobyl exclusion zone
On the 26th of April, 2017, Oleg, a young man feeling broken and
lost among the crowd at a techno-rave in Kiev, and tries to
escape from reality. He meets a mysterious girl called Sasha,
and at sunrise runs away and hops on a freight car, leaving the
city and his life behind.
The journey leads him to the Chernobyl exclusion zone. There,
following his enchanting companion, Oleg experiences symbolic
exploration of a post-apocalyptic world and faces death,
searching the answer for inexpressible grief, which has been
gnawing him from the inside.
As sunlight transitions to starlight, he finds himself on top
of “Duga”, a classified over-the-horizon radar system. At this
moment Oleg has an epiphany, and gets a chance to rediscover himself.
