35 years after the accident at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant, a group of young guys are trying to re-interpretate this place of the tragedy through art. The dream of our main character – Igor – is to create a rave in Chernobyl. That would help become the exclusion zone into an accessible platform, and not a heavy Soviet legacy. Igor is going to face a reality in which not everyone is ready to accept Chernobyl as a territory for new opportunities. In the process of creating a rave, the system of black business, corruption and hypocrisy of the authorities is revealed. Igor’s path proves that change is inevitable: a dialogue between old paradigms and ideas of a new generation must happen.
