February 1996: Tamara and Vladimir live in the Muslyumovo, a remote Siberian village which has produced the plutonium responsible for three nuclear disasters in the 1950’s and 1960’s. The most radioactive place on the planet has ceased to exist on any map. There are no visitors, and the few remaining inhabitants are prohibited from leaving, which means they are trapped in a place resembling Hell. Bound by a love that grows weaker by the day, they scrounge for food and fight to survive amongst the ruins of apartment buildings and abandoned warehouses. Trapped and forbidden to communicate outside the boundaries of this sinister city, they consume the crumbs of their claustrophobic passion…until a prodigious event changes everything for them.
