Monochrome contrasting winter landscape, shot in Kyshtym, on both sides of the Techa riverbed, in the Southern Urals. This area, equal to 23,000 square kilometers, is one of the most radioactively contaminated in the world. Regular operation and several major accidents at the Mayak nuclear power plant have resulted in water, soil and air pollution. However, people living here are constantly exposed to radiation. Neither distress signals nor rumors about the consequences of the catastrophic explosion in 1957 are spread by local residents, meanwhile, after Chernobyl and Fukushima, the disaster in Kyshtym is considered the third worst disaster in the history of nuclear energy. One of the most serious nuclear accidents on Earth remained hidden from the public. Today, 55 years after these apocalyptic events, the struggle of the people who live here is more than just survival.
