Three guys and two girls jump into an old Volga car and set out in pursuit of a thief who stole a huge sum of money from one of them. He now runs away to Pripyat, to the destroyed Chernobyl nuclear power plant. Were they meant to be together? And what, in fact, draws them to Chernobyl? The journey grows more dangerous and entangled with every kilometer; the exclusion zone that emerged after the nuclear catastrophe becomes the teenagers’ greatest unfathomable adversary. Trying to get out of this anomalous location, they get caught in a time loop and found themselves right in the place of the disaster a few hours before it happened.
Employing the most advanced CGI, stunts, and special effects, in the first place, Chernobyl is still a story of ordinary teenagers who tried to fix their mistake, but turned out to have changed the past and the whole course of history instead.
