On April 26th, 1986, a number of wrong decisions have lead to greatest nuclear disaster of mankind. In the aftermath more than 200,000 people had be evacuated, 50,000 people alone from the town of Pripyat. This reportage explores the aftermath 35 years after the catastrophe, exploring the Nuclear Power Plant Chernobyl with its four different units (including infamous control room 4, where the fatal decisions happened). It also explores abandoned towns, the ghost-town of Pripyat. There are portraits of one of the last resettlers, elderly people who decided to live in the Zone.
