In the aftermath of the 1986 Chernobyl nuclear catastrophe, nearby Pripyat was rendered a virtual ghost town. Austrian documentary filmmaker Nikolaus Geyrhalter travels to the once-bustling city to tell the story of the residents who chose to stay behind. Focusing on the lives of Pripyat's largely elderly population and the Soviet government's heavy-handed response to the calamity, Geyrhalter uncovers the dark secrets behind one of the worst environmental disasters in history.
