journalistic journey through the countries of the Ukraine,
Belarus, Russia, Latvia, Sweden, France, and UK. It follows
twenty people in their daily lives nowadays and reflects
on how they changed after the events of April 1986. The
goal of the project is to learn from the history and look
at the accident from the present perspective at different

It was terrible having to knock on the door or window in
the middle of the night to tell the parents that their children
should be evacuated the next morning. We said it was because
of the radioactivity, which could have bad consequences
for all of them. We arranged a place for everyone to gather
to be put on buses. It was a dreadful sight."
