BABUSHKAS OF CHERNOBYL

In the radioactive Dead Zone surrounding Chernobyl's Reactor No. 4, a defiant community of women scratch out an existence on some of the most toxic land on Earth. They share this hauntingly beautiful but lethal landscape with an assortment of visitors-- scientists, soldiers, and even 'stalkers'-- young thrill-seekers who sneak in to pursue post-apocalyptic video game-inspired fantasies. Why the film's characters, Hanna, Maria and Valentyna, chose to return after the disaster, defying the authorities and endangering their health, is a remarkable tale about the pull of home, the healing power of shaping one's destiny and the subjective nature of risk.
