Director
Viesturs Kairišs

Ihor, 30 years old, has been living in the zone of Chornobyl for almost ten years. He wanted to find peace and a chance to escape from modern civilization. Psychological issues, both personal and global, are still troubling him. He embodies both harmonizing peace and supernatural stress. And also, an existential secret. A secret of the essence of life. He is surrounded by the elderly inhabitants of Chornobyl who live in villages entirely overcome by nature. They lead their own unrealistic, Atlantean life, and even the war in Ukraine seems to be happening on another planet for them.
