On 26th April 1986, a reactor at Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant exploded sending an enormous radioactive cloud over Northern Ukraine and its neighbouring Belarus. Unaware of the danger, locals went about their business as usual, breathing in the noxious dust all around them. One of the worst man-made disasters of the 20th Century, Chernobyl’s damaging effects can be felt to this day. HEAVY WATER – A FILM FOR CHERNOBYL tells the story of that fateful day and the people who dealt with the disaster at ground-level: the fire-fighters, the soldiers, the 'liquidators', and their families.
