Chernobyl 1986 – Now Showing (NR, 136min, Drama, In Russian with English Subtitles)

After the explosion at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant number 4, the USSR and all of Europe is faced with an even greater threat — a possible steam explosion that would eject even more radioactive material into the atmosphere over the entire continent. Firefighter Alexey volunteers his crew for a potentially suicidal mission: manually drain the plant’s reservoir before the melting reactor collapses into it. Risking their lives in service to their country, Alexey and his colleagues must navigate the labyrinthine passages of the plant’s underground, facing danger at every turn. Chernobyl is based on the true story of the heroes that helped prevent the nuclear disaster from becoming a global catastrophe.
