What is life like for these people, a life with the invisible and incomprehensible danger of radioactivity? How do they deal with the after effects of such an accident? Four protagonists tell their stories and provide a look at everyday life in ‘their‘ zone. Austria, 1999, 100 mins, Ukrainian & Russian with English subtitles, directed by Nikolaus Geyrhalter
