A film about the devastating consequences of nuclear weapon testing in the former Soviet Union. A special emphasis on the world’s biggest nuclear test site, the Semipalatinsk Test Site, now within the territory of the Republic of Kazakhstan. The former site is one of the most contaminated places on earth. Being presently left completely uncontrolled, it is still a major health threat to the residents of the site’s vicinity, who may have received more radiation over a longer period of time than any other people on earth. And that problem still remains an open wound: either unknown, or not taken care of properly.
