Fedor Alexandrovich is a young Ukrainian theater artist obsessed with a Soviet-era antenna six kilometers from the Chernobyl nuclear power plant. He was four years old when the reactor exploded, and he has radioactive isotopes in his bones to this day. As he studies this enormous secret weapon, he uncovers what he believes to be a massive cover-up and crime committed by the Soviet Union. In the midst of his work, his countrymen rise up against their Moscow-backed president and he is swept up into the revolution. Soon he must decide whether to stand up to them or succumb to the very fears and lies he has dedicated his life to eradicating. Winner of the Grand Jury Prize in World Cinema-Documentary at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival. 2015, Ukraine/UK/US, in Russian and English with English subtitles, 80 minutes.
