This is “Chalice”, go ahead. FILM.UA PRESENTS Due to an accident at the Chornobyl
Nuclear Power Plant in the city of Pripyat… I can say I’m your sister if you want. More! Mariya Poyezhaeva You can start thinking about me already. We’ve got only 1 minute to wrap it up. Ryskulov! Ryskulov! I could never imagine that
you could be so beautiful. Yuriy Borisov Did the other soldier die? Doctor, your attention
is needed over here. Why are you here? Are
you in good health? Yes. Why are you asking? Where’s Igor? Evgenia Loza Evacuation. Is it really that serious? Only volunteers will be allowed to fly. May I prepare the
machine for the flight? Andrey Kazakov 24-205, you are over the site. Artyom Tkachenko The bus will take you to Chornobyl. Patients with discernible signs of radiation
exposure have been admitted to the hospital. Yuriy Nazarov Is everything all right with my girls? Bring blood type B Rh-negative. Thank God, we found a donor. I will make sure to
call you after the 20th. Yulia Ruthberg In the movie INSEPARABLE Written by Valeriy Mukharyamov Comrades, be careful with the banner.
I am responsible for the installation. Directed by Vitaliy Vorobyov Take this. Come on. Be careful with the cloth,
we’ll use it next year! Good. Guys, make sure
this is finished by noon. Music by Maxim Koshevarov Executive producer Anna Skok Marina Petrovna! Marina Petrovna! Creative producer Olesya Lukianenko Who’s causing troubles around here? This novel by Kuprin…
Listen to me carefully! It might also be in the list you will be
presented with for the composition exam. Alya? Shirokova! I also love Kiev in the springtime, but you should focus
on the upcoming exams here! Produced by Viktor Mirskiy I’m sorry, Nina Afanasievna, but I’m going to pick another topic
for my composition anyway. Oh really? Well, it’s up to you,
but if you’d care to share why, I’d be most grateful. Kyiv, April 25, 1986 I think that all of these yarns
about how in love the Zheltkovs were or about poor Lisa are fairy tales
and have nothing to do with real life. So forgive me, Nina Afanasievna,
if I can’t quite take it seriously. Wow, look at the big brain on this one. Shut it, Zyaba. Knock it off, Zyablikov.
It’s a shame you feel this way, Alya. Throughout the history of literature,
especially classic Russian literature, the theme of “Sacrifice in the name
of love” has been central. Yes, yes, Alya! Starting with “The word of Igor’s army”. Hey, relax now.
No one is going anywhere. Sit down. Tomorrow is a Saturday? It’s a shame
you don’t have my class tomorrow. But no worries, we will definitely
continue on this topic first thing Monday. Good-bye for now. Shirokova has a point! Our John Lennon over here is
in love with the actor Tihonov- so should she be swallowing
matches now or something? Dumbass. -Zyaba!
-What! Seriously, what did I do? Did I say a thing that would
call for the reaction I got? -Hodatsky!
-Yes. Come here a minute.
Are you the one smoking “Cosmos”? -Ugh.
-Knock it off. Let’s go clean it up. You’ll do fine in composition. -What am I supposed to do?
-Don’t worry. I’ll write it for you if Afanasievna
doesn’t send me to the Headmistress again. Okay, bye. Alya! Do you want the jeans or not?
Ante up, or I will sell them to Oxana. Oh!
Please don’t give it away just yet, Galka! I am a little short, but I’ll get
it from my granddad or Maryana today. Go ahead but Ksusha has
already tried them on. Hurry up, girls! You midget! -Hello Auntie Lisa!
-Hello, Alinka. -I’m coming!
-Granddad, have you got dough? What? What “dough”?
Did something happen? -I mean have you got any money?
-What for? Galka is holding a pair of jeans
for me but I’m a little short. How much do you need? -A tenner.
-I only have three. Have you asked Maryanka? -She manages all our finances anyway.
-Ugh. No, she’s stingy. -Wait up, I’ve got news!
-What is it? Your father called. -Daddy!
-Yeah! Why didn’t you say anything right away?! Like it’s that simple with you!
Yes, he is back to the USSR! The war is over or our brave heart. -When is he going to be back home?
-He promised to be here after Victory Day. He’d gotten permission to leave,
but that’s the only time he can make it. -That’s like two more weeks!
-Well it’s a military thing! You really should stay home today! What if he calls again? When is Maryanka going to be back? She should be back from
the hospital any minute now. Are you going to wait for her
or will you go ahead with dinner? -I’ll wait, Gramps.
– Okay, fine. Ricky, my girl. You wait for me. Don’t worry, dad will be home soon. You’re not eating bread again. I thought we could go visit
aunt Nadya on the weekends. In Pripyat. What do you think, Alevtina? There’s nothing there. You’ll run off to your Igor
as soon as we get there. What am I supposed to do?
“Visit aunt Nadya”, right! Why don’t you just get married already? That’s none of your business.
But I would let you drive. Huh? What about school? Won’t I miss
a crucial part of my education? Alya, just go already. Have a trip!
Maryana will write you a note. It’s not like they’re going
to exclude you for missing a day. Daddy! -Hello!
-Alya, it’s me! -Dad? Yes!
-I’m back! Yes, granddad told me!
Why is it taking so long? How is school?
Have they kicked you out yet? School? Everything is fine! -And what about university?
-Of course I’m going! Listen, dad, I’ve got a sweet
deal on a pair of frosted jeans, but Maryana is being stingy! -What jeans?
-What do you mean “what jeans”? It’s the latest trend they have going,
apparently. -Fine, get them!
-Good! Just come as soon as you can! Where’s Maryana? Is she home? She’s right here. Wait a second. -I love you daddy!
-Come on already! Hi dad! -Hi!
-Yes. -See? I’m back – you worried for nothing!
-Thank god it’s all behind you now. -How’s work?
-It’s okay. Actually it’s much better since
they hired another endocrinologist. -How’s Gramps? How is his blood pressure?
-We measured it yesterday. Everything seems to be okay. -A real tough one, him!
-Yes he is. We’re thinking of going
to Aunt Nadya’s for the weekend. -The two of you?
-Yeah, Alya and I. -Is Igor there?
-Igor? What does Igor have to do with it? Oh absolutely!
Igor has nothing to do with it! Okay, let me talk to Gramps. Okay dad, wait a sec. Okay, kisses, bye. -Hello!
-Alya! Get over here! Don’t touch the mirror,
how many times must I tell you? You think I don’t know what
you’re going to tell your Igor? “I really didn’t want to come,
but my silly sister made me.” That’s an awful impression of me. But when dad gets home I’m so telling him that you’ve
been smoking his cigarettes. I didn’t smoke them.
I gave them to the guys! You did smoke them! You… you shave your legs! What an idiot… -Right back at you!
-Alya! La la la la! My sister shaves her legs! Damn it. It’s all your fault! Hurry it up, Maryana! Faster! -Now what are we supposed to do?
-How should I know? You’re the one that took all those
courses on car maintenance! -The spark plug is down.
-Change it then! Why are you parked
in the middle of the road? Why aren’t the blinkers on? -Hello, officer.
-Ugh. Hello. You know you can’t just park
in the middle of the road like that! Excuse me, what’s your name? -My name?
-Yes. Your name. -Lieutenant Strigunok.
-Is Strigunok your name or surname? -Alya!
-It’s my surname. It’s a normal enough surname.
My name is Lyosha. Alexey… Well my name is Alevtina. Alya. Comrade Lieutenant Strigunok, could you please take a look at
what’s wrong with our car? -Yes of course. I’ll have a look.
-Thank you. Oh. This wire got disconnected. See, Maryana.
I told you that it was all in the… -Wire.
-Exactly! -So will it start?
-Yes. Try it now. Thank you so much.
Could you tell us how to get to Pripyat? I’ve heard there is some sort of shortcut. You need to take the road to Chernobyl.
Right by the plant. Thank you ever so much
Lieutenant Strigunok. We will never forget you. You’re welcome. Anytime. Bye. Who knows? Maybe destiny
will bring us back together! What the hell are you doing,
you piece of dirt!? Who taught you this crap? I don’t know what you mean. Come on, start! Please! Looks like we will have
to spend the night. We’re almost there! Do you remember which wire
that Strigunok fixed? I was certain you would remember. Alya, let the dog out. Ricky. It’s so quiet. Ricky! Alya, get back in the car! Ricky! My god, what is that? Out of the way!
Get that car the hell out of the way. I don’t know how! It broke down! Go! Go! Maryana! Okay, bring it in! Go, go, go. Stop, that’s enough! Pripyat. April 26, 1986. Here! Okay. Hey lady! Come with us! -Come on, hurry up!
-I’m coming! Kostya, take a picture. Kubok, this is 24-50-5,
waiting for the landing order. This is Kubok. Fly over to the gates. Wind speed is 2-3 meters per second.
You’ve got permission to land. Greetings! I don’t even know how bad it is yet.
Let’s hope it’s a false alarm. Boris, why are they calling me to Kiev? It’s not just you.
Kuzichev is also being called in. -Orders from HQ.
-I wonder what they have cooking. I was promised a leave from the twelfth. Get that out of the way. Keep moving. You’ll have your leave. Listen Nikolay, since you’re my second
in command I’ll let you in on it. They are going to be
handing out medals for May Day. -And that’s all?
-What were you expecting? You will be shown on TV. Let your
daughters see their father the hero! My daughters are here in Pripyat,
by the way. They came to visit their aunt. Oh. Well. Tomorrow night,
maybe the day after tomorrow, you can all go together. -I just want to let them know I’m here.
-Sorry, I can’t let you go. There is going to be a meeting
in an hour and I need you here. Write them a note.
I’ll get someone to deliver it. Don’t forget the address. To the headquarters. Great. No one is home.
What is it with us today? I’m hungry. I can’t even think about that now.
My head hurts… And I’m nauseous. -Morning sickness.
-Are you crazy? Where did you learn these things from? -We had a class at school.
-Right. Maryana, is that you? With Alya! Hi! -Hi, Aunt Valya! How are you?
-Oh we haven’t slept a wink last night. -Why not?
-Something happened at the plant. Yeah, we saw. It was a terrible explosion.
We had to leave the car. We barely made it and
now there is no one home. Wait! Nadezda left the keys for you. -Let me get them.
-Okay. Maryana. What’s wrong? Private Derzhavin, reporting for duty. Oh, Derzhavin. You wouldn’t happen to be the descendant
of Gavriil Romanovich? -The poet.
-No. My village is called Derzhavnoe –
that’s where I got my surname from. Shame. Here, deliver it to this address. And tell them… tell them to wait for me. -Yes sir. Right away.
-Right away. Derzhavin. Oh, here comes the suitor! -Hello, Illarion Mikhailovich!
-Hello! Hold on to the door,
cause we’ve got drafts. Where are Maryana and Alya?
Are they still in Pripyat? I thought Maryana was in Kiev. Looks likt you missed each other.
Okay, come in. I had to hitchhike.
There are major traffic disruptions. If only I knew they were coming,
I’d wait for them. Why’d you come then? I told you, Illarion Mikhailovich,
I’ve got a pre-graduation leave. I see. Why didn’t you wait for Maryana?
She went to meet with you? I had some concerns. Fire broke out yesterday
at the power plant. Looks like there was a small accident. My father is a nuclear physicist. He told me about similar accounts. -You see? People died.
-What? Pripyat. Medical
Sanitation Department 126. Vasya! Vasya! Sergei! Maryana Nikolaevna? Why are you here?
Are you feeling alright? -Yes, why do you ask? Where’s Igor?
-He’d gone. -Where?
-To see you in Kiev. His leave starts today. But we agreed to meet up here! That’s strange. He said he needed to get
to Kiev because you were very sick. Me sick? No, there must be some mistake. Maybe there’s been a misunderstanding.
Maybe it’s just me. I’m sorry but I’m just so awfully busy.
I have to go. I’m going to go warn my sister
and come back to help. -Are my girls all right?
-Of course they are. Why didn’t you call?
I spent all day here by the phone. I tried to call.
There was no connection. DLD has been cut off in the entire city. I wouldn’t go unless Sergei told me… -Sergei who?
-My colleague. He told me that patients
with visible signs of radiation exposure have
been admitted to the hospital. -How many? Huh?
-What? -How many patients?
-There’s a plenty. The medical personnel is
running off their legs. There aren’t enough wards for the victims. It’s got chilly in here. Illarion Mikhailovich,
please don’t get me wrong. I’ve just graduated.
I haven’t got much experience. I don’t think I could
be of any help there. Besides, it’s not my field of expertise.
I am a children’s doctor. Is Sergei a doctor, too? Yes. He’s a gynecologist. Gynecologist. And you’re on paid leave. You must be thinking I did wrong. I was about to feed
you some cabbage soup. You must have got hungry
running away from your patients. I said to hold on to the door! Lida, tell Grisha not to take
the bike while I’m away. Do you hear me? He will wreck it. -Vasya, my dear!
-Sanya, you? You shouldn’t be here with me. -Take care of our child.
-I will, I will. You need to take care of yourself.
Why are they sending you to Moscow? -Why don’t they let you stay at home?
-It’s all right. I always wanted to see the capital city. Let’s go! Good-bye! -Doctor, your attention is needed!
-I’m coming! One moment. It’s from my dad! Ugh. The Major also
asked me to tell you… to wait for him. That’s all. Wait. Where are you going?
Did I say you could go? Excuse me? -Have you eaten today?
-No I haven’t. Good,
because my sister left for the hospital and I can’t stand to eat alone. Let’s go. But I can’t.
They will kill me if I’m not back soon. -Who, my dad?
-No, the sergeant. Listen, my dad is more important that
any sergeant, so let’s go. I have a cake. Have some more, don’t be shy. No, thank you. At this rate there
will be nothing left for your sister. There will, don’t worry. You’re funny. -Who do you live with in Kiev?
-My granddad. Oh. What about your mom? My mom died a long time ago. -I’m sorry, I didn’t know.
-It’s fine. I don’t even remember her. I got this watch from her though. -More tea?
-No no no, thank you. Let me wash the dishes and then I’m off. Wash the dishes? That’s a little too much.
I’ll do it myself. You are so weird. Sit down. Why am I weird?
I’m just not from the city. Fair enough but what did you do at home? -Do you have any passions or hobbies?
-I don’t know. Maybe you like fine art? Or theatre? We don’t have a theatre.
Only a rec center. Ah, what about music?
Do you like modern music? Modern Talking, Duran Duran or maybe
our bands like Kino or something? Did they play Tsoy
in that center of yours? I’ve heard a couple of songs. A couple of songs?
Everyone is mad about them right now! You need to know these
things! Here, listen. -You like it?
-I do. I also like the classics. Granddad told me that when my mom
would sing Solveig I cried. -Funny isn’t it?
-Why? Grieg is a great composer. -You know Grieg’s music?
-Play something. Let me. Wait, here. Uh-huh. Like this. 24-205, I am Kubok. You are over
the object. Careful over there. That was… beautiful. -I must look like such an idiot…
-Why? No, not at all. -You really aren’t mad at me?
-No. Then play something else. I really have to get going. Thank you for… Thank you. Wait, I’ll see you out. Where did you learn
playing the piano so well? My teacher, Lilia Mikhailovna,
was giving me lessons. -At school?
-No, at the children’s home. -What?
-I am an orphan. So what? Nothing. So, you’ve got no one? Why? I wasn’t alone there.
I’ve got friends. I see. Come see us tomorrow if you want. Well… they won’t let me go. Tell my dad.
He will make sure they let you go. What will I tell him? What, they don’t ever give
you permission to leave? Sometimes they do. One guy was allowed to spend time with his mother and
sister who came to see him. I will say that I’m your sister then! -But I’m an orphan…
-Oh, sorry. Would they let you see your fiancee? -Meaning you?
-Why not? If you want… Why are you looking at me like that? I can’t play jokes like that. -Don’t play jokes.
-They won’t believe me. -Why?
-Because! Why won’t they believe you?
Go ahead and tell me! -Why won’t they believe?
-Because… because we never even kissed! -Is this necessary?
-Yes, it is! That’s how it works. -Or are you scared?
-Why? No. -Yes.
-No. Please, go ahead. -Looks like you got scared!
-I don’t want it to be like this. -Like this?
-It’s not a joking matter. All right, let’s do it for real. -You’re so foolish.
-Me? No. I’m a straight-A student. I’ll be honest with you.
I always wanted to have someone. And so? I’m being serious. -Won’t you change your mind later?
-About what? About what we’ve been
discussing just now… Am I a little girl? -Wait! I will be taking care of you.
-You will be taking care? What if you don’t get
permission to leave? How will you be taking care of me? -I’ll be thinking about you.
-That’s something! May I? Yes. You may do it starting today. You may start thinking about me right now. -That’s at mine.
-Wait, I’ll come with you. -You can’t go any further.
-When will I see you again? I’ll come.
Just please don’t change your mind. I promised I wouldn’t. Okay. -Wait!
-What is it? -We forgot the most important thing.
-Which one? -The kiss. Isn’t it necessary?
-Yes. -There you go.
-Alright. Wait! What’s your name? Pasha. Pavel. What’s yours? Alevtina. But you have to call me Alya. -Good. Okay.
-Bye, Pavel. Alya! Alechka! Alya, it’s Aunt Valya. -Oh, Alechka.
-What is it? -Where is Maryana?
-She’s at the hospital. -They say a lot of firefighters got hurt.
-Yeah. Well they have all been sent to Moscow.
There’s no one there. Why would Maryana go to Moscow?
What’s the matter, Aunt Valya? My son in law came from Borispol, he took
all the injured people to the airport, and he says that there was a
young female doctor, pretty, not from around here named Maryana… -What about her?
-Right in front of the plane… -She fainted.
-She fell? -Yes. And blood came from her nose.
-Why blood? She became sick. From those
who were brought from the plant. I don’t understand it.
What is she sick with? Atoms, radiation… it’s in the air… Everyone is getting sick now. My god. Kubok, I am 24-200-5, the mission
is complete. We are landing now. -Comrade major.
-What is it? Check this out.Don’t be sad, my rotor-driven friendThat there aren’t beautiful songs about usI promise to write a song about youJust whistle me a tune with your rotors-How’d you like it?
-It’s bearable. You don’t know the first thing
about lyrics, comrade major! -I don’t like this?
-It sounds good to me. Kuzin, it’s excellent lyrics. I don’t like this lull. I don’t understand why they ordered
to stop burying the reactor. Our superiors know better. -You think so?
-Hell yes. Here they come. I bet they’ll start
delivering presents now. Put the guitar aside.
You’re no pop singer. Knock it off, Nikolai. I’ve just got a call
from the headquarters. They’re thinking evacuation.
The whole city. Excuse me, where can I find
Maryana Nikolaevna, a doctor? Sergei Alexeevich might know. Go straight through the corridor,
then turn right. -Hello.
-I know you. -You’re Alya, right?
-Yes. What happened to my sister? Excuse me, I’m exhausted. The X-ray room is the safest place now
in the hospital. What’s with my sister? Yes, yes. Maryana Nikolaevna. She’s got signs of radiation sickness. What does it mean? Is it dangerous? I don’t think toy should be concerned. Her contacts with the sick people
were rather brief. Sergei Alexeevich. switch the radio on! Due to an accident at the Chornobyl
Power Plant unfavorable climate is shaping up in the city of Pripyat. Temporary evacuation is required. Your attention, please. Due to an accident
at the Chornobyl nuclear Power Plant, unfavorable radiation environment has been
forming up in the city of Pripyat. Mom, are we coming back here? I don’t know, darling. Lyoha! Come on, hurry up! -Is it this bus?
-Yes, I think so. They say it’s just for three days! We can spend holidays there! I’m glad I have finished
my research paper. Evacuation? Is it really that bad? Hard to say but you understand,
better play this one safe. We’ve been ordered to stop
burying the reactor. -Do they fear another breakout?
-Yes. But that’s not what I wanted
to talk to you about. What is it, commander? There’s a scientist coming here and he wants to have a look inside
the reactor and he needs our help. They need to measure something.
What are your thoughts? Thoughts? I guess we have to risk it. I knew they would call for it. But there is no way of getting
there other than from above. Right. The risk is very high though. Who knows how will react the machine
to such powerful radiation source? We need an experienced pilot.
I am a newcomer in this regiment. I don’t know people well enough. I will fly myself. How is this? It’s not right.
We can’t do this. Granny Rosa, what are you saying?
Just get I the bus! -Senior lieutenant Strigunov!
-Hello! -Dear, you tell him!
-What is it? You won’t believe it. -She wants to take this with her.
-So what? Look what this is! -Who is that?
-It’s my landlord, Aaron Grigorievich. He needs to be buried. They will manage without you.
I let them know over the radio. I promise you, he’ll be taken care of. -Why aren’t you in the bus?
-I’m with my father here. He’s with the military,
the rotor-winged regiment. So, you aren’t going? Please, keep an eye on the corpse
so that granny doesn’t worry. -Dear, please.
-I will keep an eye on him, don’t worry. Thank you, miss. All the best to you! -I am Alya! Alevtina. Did you forget?
-Thank you, Alya! I’ve got an order to send you to Kiev.
What if something happens to you? -Boris, we are officers, aren’t we?
-We aren’t at war. The war is where the danger is.
Do you think it will be easier for me to send Sasha Shinkar instead? He
flew into hell of fire when I got shot. Or Slava Morosiev,
who lost two crews in one month? You don’t have to send anyone.
Only volunteers will fly. -May I prepare the machine for the flight?
-Why don’t you talk to Kuzichev first? Yes, comrade colonel! -Kuzia, it’s you?
-Wow, you recognized me? Tolya, how should I put it? There is an unprecedented situation… Commander,
if you say something foolish now, our friendship will be over in an instant. -And I won’t write a song about you.
-You were eavesdropping? Damn you! No, I guessed. The chemical safety guys will come soon. We will have to get our machine ready. No no, I will carry it myself. Who’s this Albert Einstein? Let’s go have a look. Commander. At ease. Meet Mr. Ebstein from the
Science Academy. He is a physicist. I told you. Eduard Markovich. – Major Shirokov. Captain Kuzichev. – Hello. Eduard Markovich, could you please
relay the objectives in brief? Comrades pilots, here’s the thing. –
We’re all attention, comrade scientist. In order to decide upon further actions aimed
at emergency containment it is desirable… No, it’s absolutely necessary to
make certain physical measurements in a close vicinity to the reactor. So we aren’t going to land
on the reactor, are we? No, no. Well… no,
there is no need really. We only have to… Excuse me, I
don’t know military terminology. Boris Andreevich, how is it
called? – Hovering. – That’s right. We need to hover over the
site on a near-ground level. Piece of cake! – Belay
that, captain! – Excuse me. Are there any substantial questions? -May we go about the order?
-Yes. Yes, sir. No more jokes, captain.
Did you hear the order? Yes, comrade major. this is “Chalice”.
Wind 210, 3-4 meters per second. Do you think your family
will leave as well? They will wait for me. I’m executing the right turn. -Hey you!
-Yes. -What’s your name?
-Eduard Markovich. Okay. If the helicopter gets pulled into
the reactor you know what to do, right? No, I don’t. You have to wave your hands like this
as though they were wings, understand? I do, comrade pilot. 24-205, this is “Chalice”, report. “Chalice”, this is 24-205, I’m going in. This is “Chalice”, go ahead, over.
Good luck, guys. Well Kuzia, god bless us. We’ll make it. 24-205, you are directly above target. This is 24-205 – proceeding with hover. Altitude – one twenty. Executing drop. Go. 24-205, don’t stay silent. Report. This is Twenty four two hundred five,
we are working. Altitude one hundred.
The temperature is too high. Engine power is dropping. Lower. We need to go lower. Alright. Propeller spins are dropping. Be careful. Watch out for the smokestack to your left! Hey, miss! Are you lost?
You can’t be here. Do you know how angry the police are now?
They might take you away. There is no one. I’ve been waiting… -Help me, please.
-With what? I don’t know what to do with him. What is this? Who is it? -Grandfather.
-Yours? No. I was asked to keep an eye on him. -What will you do?
-I don’t know. My sister is just like you. So foolish. Let’s go. We need to bury him. -What was his name?
-Aaron Grigorievich, I think. Why? We need to know his name to perform
service. Do you know any prayers? -No, I don’t.
-Shame. You’re not mixing anything up, are you? No, sir. This is the house. Alright. Stay here. Anyone there? There’s no one here. We need to have a closer look inside.
You never know. There’s no one here. This is my district. Everyone left. There’s nobody there.
Listen private, head towards the base. Yes, sir. HQ. Alya? Alya? Pasha! Pasha I knew you’d come. Your father died. Where are you going? Alya, I need to go. I’m not letting you go. Let me go. Alya, they will look for me.
I need to go. I’ll be back, I promise. Let me go. Don’t leave me alone, Pasha.
Please. I beg you. Do you want me to get down
on my knees? I’ll do it. Alya! What are you doing? Stop it. Please. You won’t leave me, will you?
You wouldn’t do that. I love you very much. I don’t have anyone but you anymore! I’m alone! I have no one! Alya, snap out of it! Wake up! You know what we are going to do now? We are going to get naked and lie
under the covers like man and wife! Huh? -Pasha?
-Alya. Fine. If you have to go – go. Alya, I’ll be back soon. I know. Because if you don’t I will die. -Alya!
-Yes? Listen to me, please. I’ve heard the Commander say that
the city will be abandoned… -No, I’m not leaving here alone.
-Listen to me! Shut up, we will share everything
from now on! Understand? I’m worried about you! And I’m worried about you. And now you should go. Go, it will be morning soon.
Go and think about me. I don’t have anyone but you too. Go! Next one! STOP Clear. Clear. Clear, go. Next one. Clear. Clear. Next one! Clear. Contaminated. -Have you got another shoe?
-No. Sanya! Bring a right shoe from the stock. You will have to throw your shoe away now.
Throw it in the general pile. Okay, go ahead, man. Next! Contaminated. Contaminated too.
Lady, what is this? -Excuse me, are you from Pripyat?
-No, those guys were evacuated yesterday. -All of them?
-Who knows? Someone might have stayed. That’s our doctor! Hello. We started thinking that you were
unwell like Sergey Alexeevich. What happened to him? You don’t know?
The police found him at home half-dead. He’s over there, in the ambulance. Sergey! Sergey. I heard you were a doctor. -What?
-Are you a doctor? -Yes, I’m a children’s doctor.
-Very good, come with me. We withdrew a man and
his daughter from a bus. The child looks critical.
I am a nurse, Nina. -Nina, how is the child?
-I’m not sure. The father said she had
stomach ache and nausea. He thought it was food poisoning. -On the bus she started feeling worse.
-Okay, let’s see. On your feet everyone! Major! At ease, this isn’t a parade! At ease! So boys. Are they feeding you well? What’s your name, son? Ryskulov, sir. Do you speak Russian? They are feeding us well, sir.
They have given us additional supplies. So you see? The motherland takes care
of you but it is also counting on you. Here’s what I think lads. We need
to help her out. Don’t we, Ryskulov? -Don’t we?
-Yes, we should. Good. See? Even Ryskulov gets it.
Because the situation is like this. The renowned Japanese technology
that we have on the roof is broken. The capitalists can’t make it work here. But the soviet soldier is up to any task,
am I right? Yes, sir! Good boy. What’s your name, son. Private Djamilev! With heroes like this
we can do anything. Anyway, we need to clear
the rubble off the roof of the reactor. Easy as pie – you come, you work
for about a minute with the shovel. But if you stay for
longer – you’re a goner. Anyone who handles at least three
rounds will be free to go home. Home! You want to go home? Of course! That’s what I thought! You’ll be eating your kish-mish
with your fiancees in no time. -Do you have fiancees?
-Yes, sir! Good. Then you can start today. So, who wants to answer
to the call of the motherland first? I do! I do too! Me too. That’s just grand. Sergeant! -Yes!
-Get them changed into gear. Will do. Follow me. Watch and learn lieutenant. This is how you need to address
your subordinates. I’m afraid that not all of the soldiers
understand the dangers involved, Major. That isn’t always necessary, lieutenant.
No one forces you to climb there. -If that’s the order.
-No-no. This is exclusively voluntary. What is this? Why is that here? It’s the radiation, major. She doesn’t have a mother. It’s just me and her. -Yes.
-What? -What’s wrong with her?
-It’s peritonitis. Did any doctor check her? She should have had a surgery
long time ago. I took her to the hospital
yesterday morning. Everyone was busy. It was a real mayhem. I thought it would go away by itself. You’re never there when we need you. Let me. What’s in there? Shaitan? Nothing’s in there. Give me that. Look at me and follow my lead, understand? -Yes.
-Here you are. -Lead these two.
-Yes, sir. Listen to me carefully. 5 meters from the exit
there is a fire ladder. It will lead you 1 level up. From there through a breech in the wall, through the collector
you will get on the roof. There you will get your fair
share of generous Chornobyl sun. You will have only 1 minute to wrap it up. Everything you might need – like sunblock
and beach chairs – you’ll find there. Your objective is to throw down from
the rooftop as many graphite fragments, solid fuel and so called fuel rods which
look like pieces of pencil as possible. It’s strictly forbidden
to take touch them, chew on them or keep some in order
to show your girlfriends. There’s no point checking the clock. Exactly in 1 minute you will hear
a pleasant ooh-aah of a siren. This will indicate your time is up. -Is it clear, guys?
-Yes. Good luck! Go. Hurry, hurry, hurry! Is it time? Almost. Ryskulov! Ryskulov! Ryskulov! Here, let’s go! Where are the others?
Where are the other two? Where are you going, you fool? Wake up! I order you to get up!
That’s an order, private! Lenchik, what are you doing? Open… Angelina Ivanovna, I’ve found something. How much? Two pairs of earrings and a brooch. I emptied this can and found
them hiding at the bottom. Good boy. Such idiots.
Every time it’s the same thing. Let me see. I’m not showing you anything! Why did you bury that church
cross in the graveyard? You were spying on me, you little bastard? Yes. Enough talk. Give it to me. Let’s go. Stop right there! Weapons on the ground! Did you see? He was firing at me. -Lyosha, why didn’t you hit him?
-I was aiming at the driver. -Did you get him?
-I got him in the leg. Do you see who was driving?
A girl! I didn’t shoot her. Look, a fur-coat from the shop.
They’ll be back to pick it up. -We’ll ambush them tonight.
-All right. Show me your tongue. Thank you. I can’t say just how badly
he has been irradiated. We just don’t have the proper
technology and counter I have is just not intended to
measure such intense radiation. Do you think he needs
to be sent to Moscow? As soon as possible. The dose of radiation
he received is most likely fatal. So you are saying that
he doesn’t stand a chance? I’m afraid so.
Remission is possible in a few days. He will start feeling better.
But this process is irreversible. Listen, what if he’s pretending? You can’t pretend to have
critical radiation poisoning. Doc, is there the slightest chance? I’d like to hope so
but on the other hand, the young have strong bone marrow
with the power to regenerate so it’s not unheard… But are you sure he’s not pretending? That’s impossible. Alright, then let Moscow take care of him.
That other soldier died, by the way. God knows what they might
have argued over up there. Anyway, if the district attorney
calls I’ll forward him to you. Do that. Thank you. We’ll send a car
in the evening to pick him up. -All right.
-Okay, let’s go. -May I?
-Please, have a seat. Would you like some? -No thanks.
-Shame. -Have you been there?
-Uh-huh. -How is it?
-We’re working. -You should drink some.
-No, I don’t drink alcohol. That’s not good.
It helps counter radiation. Really? You didn’t know? I’m telling you. Drink some, and you’ll be
impenetrable for the radionuclides. -I see. What are you doing there?
-Whatever we’re told to. Take me, for instance.
I had a high position in security. But now I am moving the workers out. Someone has to do it. They offered good money for it, too. Tomorrow I’ll be driving
another batch tomorrow. -So you’ll be driving under influence?
-It’s a necessity. Even in Kyiv bus drivers are
offered 200 grams of vodka. They also warn the passengers
if the driver is tipsy. Since we’re working near the power
plant, it’s absolutely necessary. It must be fun. Vera Semenovna,
could you please come over here? -Taras.
-Igor. Listen to me, Igorek. I can’t take you
to the power plant right away. I’m not authorized. You see? But as long as you get in the zone,
you’ll figure it out. -I will think about it.
-Think about it. I’ve got great respect for the doctors. I was taking the injured
to the Borispol airport on the third day after the accident. One lady doctor took such huge dosage
of radiation that she died instantly. -What was she like?
-She was young, attractive. -Her name was Maryana.
-Maryana, you say? Yes. -Did she die?
-How do you think? We barely brought her back to life. Hello? Hello? -Hello?
-Maryana? -No, it’s not Maryana.
-May I speak to Maryana Nikolaevna? -She’s not in Kiev?
-Who is this? It’s her neighbor, Elisaveta Andreevna. Is Illarion Mikhailovich at home? I don’t know how to say it…
He’s at the hospital. -What?
-He’s had extensive infarction. Excuse me. They’re escaping! Go to the other side. Go away! Go away! Shoot it, shoot it! Quiet. Quiet. Alya! Alya! Alya! Alya! Alya! Pasha! Pasha I’m here!
I’m barricaded in! Wait a minute. Come on. Shh, shh. Why are you dressed like that? I was so scared you wouldn’t find me here. I waited for you and then I dozed off and
I had a dream about my sister, Maryana. -What is it?
-Let go. -Why
-Alya, let go. Why are you taking Ricky? Let it go, it’s dead. Let go. Pasha, stop it. Cut it out. You have to be serious. Don’t laugh. Looks great. We are going to get into so much trouble
if they catch us. What for? What do you mean “what for”?
We are trying on other people’s stuff! They’ll probably say that we broke in. Don’t be silly! Who cares?
Nobody needs all this stuff now anyway. -Pasha! Pasha.
-Yes. If we get caught are they going
to take you away from me? If they do then… they probably will. The doctor said that I should be
on my way to Moscow for treatment. Are you happy you ran away? I made you a promise. Don’t you worry.
We have good doctors in Kiev too. -How are you feeling?
-Good. Pasha if you think that you
should go back, just say so. No, I don’t want to. Don’t you want to change
your dirty clothing? Pasha! Pasha, come here! Alya, if we take this it
will be accounted for theft. Oh really? Don’t worry,
I will assume the guilt for it. I’m feeling hungry. We can’t go home. It’s unlikely that
we’ll be able to get into a shop either. We’ve got no money anyway. -Even if we had some, whom would you pay?
-Well… You are such a child.
What should I do with you? Why did you come my way? Let’s go. -Let me help.
-I’ll manage. Pasha, come here! Come on. Careful. -Oh wow!
-Everything is so small. Oh! I used to have exactly
the same as a child. -And you?
-I don’t recall. Look at this! -What happened?
-Over there. Don’t, let’s just go away! Wait a second. You big dummy! It scared the hell out of me!
You know what? It’s probably hungry too. This is all what’s left. Alright then, let’s be fair. We drink the eggs and give
this poor soul the bread. Done? Done. Good? But it’s not enough… Let’s see. Right, now we are going
to break into an apartment, even if there are ten cops there. What do you need the hatchet for? The hatchet? To kill… all of them. Wait. And you aren’t coming with us,
because it’s very risky. Come on. That won’t work. You just need experience! Holy… wow! Cheese! Try it. Maybe we shouldn’t.
It always makes my head hurt. Always? You wouldn’t happen
to be an alcoholic, would you? No. I tried it a couple of times,
with the boys… in the orphanage. Fine, suit yourself.
I think it’s time we talk about the baby. What baby? What do you mean? Our baby. Or do you think that this
is just fun and games? -No, you’re right.
-Then everything is perfect. -Alya.
-Drink it. -Alya.
-For my father… -Alya…
-No, it’ll be over in a minute. Let’s have a sandwich?
Would you like some cheese? Eat up, you need strength.
We have to leave this city. -What?
-When? When night falls. We won’t be able to sneak through
the checkpoints during daytime. Pasha, you should eat, too.
You are so skinny! I will be ashamed
to introduce you to my friends. You should eat, too. What? -What? What is it?
-There’s Champagne in the fridge! -Let’s drink some?
-Why not? We can do anything now. Open it up.
We don’t have champagne glasses though. -Let me check the house.
-Alya, wait! -Don’t do it. It’s not our apartment…
-All right. -We can use the cups.
-Yeah. Wow! -To you.
-To us, Pasha. -Hurray!
-Hurray! -I want some more.
-No, we should stop. Someone might walk on us. This is it. Get down. Hey you! Why are you here? Did you run away? -From where?
-From the wedding. Hi. We weren’t on a wedding. Let’s go then! Easy, easy. Where are your guests?
Are they still celebrating? -No.
-What? They wandered away.
It’s been three days. I feel that my kidneys
can’t take any more. Tomorrow’s Tuesday, it’s my shift at work.
No more drinking. Tomorrow is Wednesday, the 30th. -You’re kidding, right?
-No. It’s a shame. I will have to write
an explanatory report. God damn this drinking. Let’s go. Hey! Where’s everyone? -Who?
-Everyone. Nina Petrovna, for instance. -Everyone got evacuated.
-Are we at war with someone? -Did everyone move out?
-Yesterday they did. -Nina Petrovna too?
-Yes, she did! It’s my fault. What, you don’t know anything? There was an accident
at the power plant. The whole city was evacuated. All people were evacuated. Did you get it? You’re unaware of what’s
happening around you. I’ve got bottleache. Let’s go! Hurry up! Okay, let’s go. Go, go! To the right. Stop! All of this is just for us. Pasha. Yeah. Ice cream! Alya! Where are you? Alya! Alya! This is empty. Get out of there. When we get married we will
eat ice cream every day. I don’t like ice cream. I love it. God, how I want to clean myself up. I haven’t washed my hair in forever. Go, go, go! Pasha! Come on. Did you doze off or something? It’s not that easy with you. -Did you see them here?
-Yes, right in this spot. -Are you sure?
-I’m positive! Is this Pripyat? Damn. He’s off his trolley. How much have you drunk yesterday, dude? You stink like shit! I didn’t count the bottles. Put this thing over your nose, it’ll help. Hands off! Okay. So, according to you,
there were 2 people here? I’ve told you a hundred times!
Two of them! And a girl. Where to next, Melkov? Melkov, let’s go visit
Nina Petrovna in Mukachevo. -I’ve got some booze left…
-Have a seat! Dimon,
make sure he doesn’t stick his head out. Start it up. We’re going to the base. I think they’re gone. It smells like cologne. Of course –
it’s the entrance to the barbershop. Pasha. Alya? How are we going to get this one open? With the key. -Ready?
-No, not yet! Don’t look. One, two, three come
and have a look at me. -Do you like it?
-I do. I never thought you
could be so beautiful! I can fix my hair up like this
for you all the time if you want. -Every day.
-I do. What? Pasha. What? Quiet! Don’t move. I’m glad we didn’t switch the light on. -Pasha, what was that?
-Those were nuclear accountants. -We must leave the city.
-Okay. Now? Yes, it’s getting dark. Let’s go. Wait a second. I need a breather.
I feel kind of dizzy. -Maybe it’s the vodka?
-Huh? -Maybe, the vodka?
-That must be it. -Do you hear that?
-It’s a car. Go here.Quick! -Are you okay?
-I’m fine. Let’s go. -Wait!
-What? -Let’s sit here for a while.
-Okay. Alya plus Pasha. -Will you be my husband?
-Yes. -Say it again.
-I will. Pasha, what’s the matter?
Don’t you love me anymore? No, I do! I can see something’s wrong! -It’s just that…
-What? -I have to tell you something.
-Go ahead! Up there on the roof…
at the plant I was heavily irradiated. -Are you feeling sick?
-No, not really. Then what? Well, it’s just that the guys said… What did your guys say? They said that… If someone becomes irradiated he can’t… he can’t be a husband. Do you understand? You made it up. I don’t believe you. I’m not making it up. Then prove it. How can I? Very easy! We have already kissed
before by the barbed wire. -So?
-Let’s go. -Kiss me.
-Okay. On the lips now. What do you feel? Delicious. Let’s do it here. -Listen.
-No. Get closer. -What?
-Hug me. Hug me stronger. Do something. -What?
-How do I know? -Alya, don’t get mad.
-I’m not mad, Pasha. You are the best. I want to lie down. -It’s wet here.
-Yes, it is. -Pasha?
-Yes. -I want to show you something.
-Okay. Here it is.
You’re the only one who saw it. What? Show me again. Alya, I love you. -This will calm you down.
-Thanks. Moscow city clinical hospital #6 Close your eyes and think
about something pleasant. If only I could… My close ones know nothing about me. My sister remained in Pripyat.
Where is she now? How is she? Alya is still a child. You should talk
to Sofia Mikhailovna about it. She’s the head of the department. She appears to be strict,
but in reality she’s very kind. Now, sleep. I will switch the light off. You lied to me in the telephone booth. Alya. Get up. Why are you awake? Wake up, we have to leave the city. Now? Yes, it’s almost morning. What happened? Nothing. Nothing.
I just need to get to a hospital. Yes, alright. Pasha, just don’t worry.
I need just a minute. -Don’t worry.
-Alya, let’s go. Everything will be fine. You’ll see. Let’s go. I’m with you. Quiet! Let’s go. Did you hear what
the first responders were saying? Their radiation hazard
meters are off charts here. They saw a couple of lovers in the forest. Oh well… -Pasha!
-Quiet! -What happened?
-Nothing. I just thought I heard voices.
Are you hungry? A little. -Wait here.
-I’ll come with you. No, just stay here.
I’ll only be a minute. Got it. I got it! Oh Lenchik, you skunk! What? Have you found it? Yes, I found it. Stepan Matveevich,
you were absolutely right! They left all the gold behind. Give me that! This must be their gold. These people are so primitive. I knew that if they buried
anything it would be here. Because they plan on coming back. -Gold.
-Let me open it. Back up. Who told you about
this house, you piece of shit? Angelina and I
will determine your cut later on. What do you think you are doing,
little shit? Don’t be rude, Stepan Matveevich.
You really shouldn’t. I couldn’t stand it
ever since I was a kid. This is so stupid. Having a good time, asshole? Wait a second. This wasn’t me. Of course it’s not you, he just happened
to fall onto some branches. -Strigunok, put him in the car.
-Let’s go. Wait a second, there was another guy here! -You can tell that to the judge.
-Why are you even talking to him? Just take him to the car and if he tries
anything put a bullet in him! Didn’t work out now, did it? Thought you can just move in
and just strip the town bare? Animals, that’s what you are! I bet you also offed your female sidekick! -Listen, I’m trying to…
-Keep your hands up! I don’t know what you are talking about;
I ended up here by accident! Stand up straight! Who would I believe you? That you just went for a nice stroll?
Get over here! Should have thought about
the consequences before. Strigunok here. What’s the situation over there,
Strigunok? Looters, major, just arrested another one.
He killed one of his own. Alright.
When you go back, swing by station 8 and they’ll give you a
description of a missing soldier. It’s a strange case so be careful,
do you copy? I understand, Captain. Swing by station 8 and get a description
on the missing soldier. Signing off. Signing off. Stop right there! I said stop. Stop! I’ll shoot. Pasha! Alya! Alya! Alya, stop!
There’s a handle in the front! The front! You have to jerk it, come on. It won’t budge! There! Lyosha,
how did it happen that you lost them? They won’t escape. I learnt all the trails
hen I worked here as Pioneer leader. So it was a girl who tricked you? She hid somewhere. She was very snappy. They won’t go to the right, there’s a bog. Make a stop here.
I want to check one lodge. Some geologists built it last year. You go a little further and hide.
They won’t escape. Okay, go. Stop! Who are you? Police?
I didn’t expect to encounter you here. Who are you? I am from the Tsurkan’s brigade
of the first responders. What did you hide in the lodge? I didn’t hide anything. I just peeked
inside out of sheer curiosity. -We are working nearby, in Gumentsy.
-In Gumentsy? -Yes.
-There’s no such village nearby. Officer, there is one, I swear. What’s in your bag? Just some canned meat.
I’m bringing it for my guys. -Do you want me to show you?
-No. I want to see what you
hid inside the lodge. -As you wish. There’s nothing there.
-Go ahead! Okay. Straight ahead! -Stay here.
-Here? Yes. Be careful on the stairs.
I nearly busted my lip! I’ll figure it out. How come you haven’t heard about Gumentsy?
I was born there. Lie down, comrade officer. Why? I’m thirsty. I’m kind of dizzy. -I can carry you if you want.
-No. Do you see me? Only a blurry silhouette. Lida, eye bandage with synthomycin. What can I say?
He should be sent to Moscow. Otherwise he might lose
his eyesight completely. Wait a minute. Why do you keep
insisting on sending them to Moscow? Why are you here? Maybe he’s got dust in the eyes
or something? That’s right, dust. Radioactive dust. Excuse me,
are you going in direction to Kiev? No. I’m going in an opposite direction. Oh it’s you? Did you make up your mind? -No, I must go to Kiev urgently.
-I can’t help. -Igor Valentinovich! Come with me.
-Where to, Nina? The ambulance got into an accident,
and the doctor broke her hand. -I applied splint.
-That’s right. How can I help? -She’s crying!
-Who, the doctor? No, Lida Astakhova! She’s giving birth! We need to hurry up! You sit here. Just catch your breath
while I see what’s in there. I’ll be back in a second. I am not an obstetrician. Pelvic presentation
is very hard to handle. I didn’t study it well enough.
You need a specialist. Stop the hysterics! Even if the other brigade
comes here in 2 hours, we will have to deliver the baby. -Why aren’t you doing anything?
-Stop! Don’t come any closer than 5 meters!
Got it? I’ve never done it before. I never delivered a child
with a broken arm either. You will have to remember what you;
ve learnt at the medical school. Igor Valentinivich, please, hurry! Go now! Man up! Stop. Pasha that’s enough! You can’t have too much,
you’ll make it worse. It’s burning inside
but I’m still freezing. Do you want something warm?
I’ll get you something. Pasha. Get away. Please. Turn away. Don’t look. It’s coming head first.
Labor pain is coming. Come on, dear, push
it! Come on. Good, good. -One more time, dear. Hold the baby.
-I am. Good girl. One more time, come on! Breathe out. Now rest. Quiet, let me check the heartbeat.
It’s slowing down. -Take the scissors.
-Okay. We have to cut. What? Are you out of your mind? I can hold you with one hand
so that to calm you down. You need to leave me and keep on going. Going… going where, Pasha? I can’t leave you, fool. We’ll stay here for a while and rest.
And then we’ll go. Together. I can’t… I can’t… I can’t walk
any more, Alya… and what for? You need to… go alone. Ryskulov… -What?
-Ryskulov… What’s wrong? Ryskulov, get down. Look at me. Ryskulov, get down! Ryskulov! Look at me! Get down! Now! Get down! Pasha! Somebody! Help! My god… You’ve got a daughter. Congratulations! I’ve done it! Don’t tell this her dad,
he might get you wrong. My beautiful. You’ve got a daughter!
Go to your wife now. That’s the second brigade coming. Damn hand hurts… -Butterflies!
-Yes, butterflies. So cold out here. Are you cold? Are you? I don’t want you to catch cold.
Everything is going to be fine. You’ll see. You’ll get well. I’m sure.
Have I ever lied to you? Tell me! Have I? Everything is going to be fine. If something happens to you, I… Зlease, forgive me. I’m a fool. You know what? We’ll probably have a girl. My dad… he’ll never see…
how beautiful his granddaughter is. Don’t worry, Pasha, I’m not crying. I’m not. You shouldn’t worry. Have some rest. I’m not crying, you see? We shouldn’t cry. Only fools and weak people cry. And we are strong, aren’t we? Thousands of people came into the beautifully
decorated Kiev streets today. The biggest enterprises
are taking part in the march. Improvised dance pavilions are
here and there in the streets. People are bringing
flowers and billboards. Banners are fluttering over their heads. It’s a beautiful march… You’ll be in Moscow for the holidays. I envy you, lieutenant. There will be an ambulance
waiting at the checkpoint. They’ll take you
to the airport in a whiff. What’s going on there? Look! Please, help.
We need to get to the hospital. Look, lieutenant.
Isn’t it your AWOL guy? I think it’s him. Ok, guys, bring him in. Derzhavin, is that you? He can’t hear you, sir. Oh-oh. I don’t get it. Is he drunk? Are you crazy? He’s sick! Ok then. Let’s go.
He’s the DA’s problem now. Attention! You will now board a bus
that will take you to Chornobyl. Please, keep order and don’t stray away. Okay, lieutenant, there is your car. -My greetings to Moscow.
-How about Derzhavin? I will have to contact the DA.
He’ll stay here for now. I don’t need this trouble on my shoulders. -He will die.
-We all will die one day. Go, lieutenant! -Good day, sir!
-Good day. Where can I find a telephone? There is one at the checkpoint. Are you the one we should
take to the airport? Let’s go. There is a sick soldier in the bus.
He’s coming with me. Get in the bus! “Chalice”, this is 24-51. I’m going in. 24-51, this is “Chalice”. Wind 280. Wind gusting to 7-8 m per sec. I see it. There is a tail boom.
That’s all what’s left of the machine. “Chalice”,
this his is twenty four fifty one. I’m approaching the target. This is “Chalice”.
You are right over the target. This is 24-51, I got you, over. Go ahead. 24-51, attention, start the drop! Forgive me, guys. Kiev, April 30th, 1986 Hello. Excuse me,
are you Elisaveta Andreevna? Yes, hello. You had a call concerning me. I am from non-government
organization of war veterans. I thought so. You want to get into
the Illarion Mikhailovich’s flat? -I will bring the keys.
-Thank you very much. Senya! Tell the guys to bring it in. Here you are. Excuse me for having disturbed you.
Tomorrow’s a holiday. We have small premises, and tomorrow
there will be a lot of visitors. Come in, guys. -Hello!
-Hello! My god… First the son, now the father. Elisaveta Andreevna,
we’ll come on the 3rd, at 10 a.m. The bus will come right to the building. By the way, have you heard anything about Illarion Mikhailovich’s
granddaughters? The elder one is in a Moscow hospital. I called the deputy chief. She will be the one to tell
Maryana Nikolaevna about this tragedy. And Alevtina… We know nothing about her. We found the donor.
His brother meets the requirements. Moscow city clinic # 6 I think we can schedule
the transplantation for tomorrow. She finally got a donor. It’s his brother.
He meets the requirements. The best time for transplantation
is tomorrow. Okay. The Doctor would like to operate
on him himself. Sure, I don’t mind. She approved of it. What’s going on? Who said you could leave your room? I’m talking to you. I’m sorry. I feel much better now. I just…
wanted to call my family in Kiev. They must be worried sick. No, no. Go back to your room.
I called your family. They know you’re here. After the quarantine is over, I promise,
they’ll be allowed to visit you. And don’t ever leave your
room without my permission. Please. -What’s happening?
-She wanted to go home. -Why didn’t she let her?
-I don’t know. Dripper. Dripper. Painkillers. Professor is asking,
why did you reject the patient? There are certain matters
I handle around here. No one else. I don’t think we should let
our dear colleague into it. Please, remind the professor
about the meeting in my office. What did she say? -She gave me a good telling off.
-Iron lady. Thank you so much. See you later! Moscow, Kievsky railway
station. May 8, 1986 Aunt Katya, it’s me. Hi, Alya. Here, have a pasty. So what? You’re going to the hospital
to see your boyfriend? Yeah. So have you though about it? About the pendent, you mean?
Well…you know… My hubby says I should take it.
But I have my doubts. The price is stiff. I can’t knock off the price.
Rafik promised he’d buy it. The market Rafik, you mean?
He’s a crook this one. He can’t be trusted. Fine, I’ll take. My only regret is I should’ve
bought your watch. Golden, was it? Yes. It was my mom’s. Here. Well, too late for that now. Minus the pasty. You count. Count! Wait! What now? You better stay over someplace else.
Volodya is on duty tonight. -He’ll try to hit on you again.
-Fine. Thanks. Wait. Did you call home? There’s no one there. Poor girl. I’m sorry. Moscow city clinic # 6. This is to be destroyed. -How many bags?
-6. -Sign here.
-I know. Come. Sakhnin, take it up! Here’s one more. I will come in an hour. -Good you’re here!
-Hello, Sofya Mikhailovna. -Volodya.
-Yes. -I will have a fight with you now.
-What happened? Havent we agreed that all the soldiers
on duty in my department will switch shifts every day? -Sofya Mikhailovna.
-Give me a straight answer! You’re a military man. We have
discussed this question, haven’t we? Yes, we have. Then explain to me why your subordinate
spent 3 days in a row here? -The guy with a haemangioma on his cheek.
-Sakhnin. Yes, Sakhnin. Sofia Mikhailovna, private Sakhnin
received a disciplinary punishment. According to the statute
I have a right to punish him. Wait. You are an intelligent person.
You’re a commander. How don’t you understand that by making this boy carry out
urinals from the hospital wards you have been putting him
in deadly jeopardy? Put your feet up. Who gave you this right? Your authorities? -But you also stay here all the time.
-I am not going to discuss this with you. -Sofya Mikhailovna!
-Leave me alone! We’re through. Hello. Hello, Sofya Mikhailovna. You again? But how? Who let you in? -Aunt Shura, please!
-Yes Call security. People keep coming
and going when they please. Get out of my office. Sofya Mikhailovna! I told you not to come here ever again.
We’re done here. Sofya Mikhailovna, let me see him. I’ll talk to him and
he’ll get better at once. She’ll talk to him and he’ll get better?
Leave now. Or do you want me to make you leave? Here, take this. What is it? Money. It’s for you. For me? Money. Get out of here! -What happened, aunt Shura?
-I don’t really know. She’s very angry. God forbid! Please, let me see him for just a second. Did you call for me? It’s all right. Close the door, please. Do you have any idea what
you were trying to pay me for? He’s going to die without me. Fine. I’ll let you see him. 10 minutes, not a minute longer. God forgive me. Sofya Mikhailovna, I’d like to see
my sister as well. She’s also here. -May I?
-Come in. Here, Sofya Mikhailovna.
The night watch report you asked for. -Is Vashchuk on IV already?
-Yes, he is. You may leave. Concerning your sister…
I’m afraid I can’t promise anything. You can see Pasha tomorrow. In the evening.
When there are less people around. Understood? Leave now. Thank you. -What’s your sister’s name?
-Shyrokova Maryana Nikolaevna. Go now. I have to work. Shyrokova Maryana Nikolaevna. Date of death: 5.40 am. The barbershop will be closed May 9th. -Why are you smiling like that?
-I’m feeling happy. You’re all smiles as if you won a lottery. I did. The main lottery in my life. I see. I’ve been down
this road 3 times already. It never worked out for me.
There’s no happiness. Excuse me, I’m being grumpy. I’ve been working all day
standing on my feet. How do you want me to fix your hair? -May I do it myself?
-Yourself? As you wish. But you will spray it with a hair spray,
ok? I need to be looking good tomorrow. All right. Styopa,
I saw you’ve got a German hair spray. Yeah. I’ve got a bride here.
Give it to me, please. Come on, Stepan, don’t be stingy. -Okay, take it from the shelf.
-Thank you. Close your eyes and breathe in. -Beautiful!
-Thank you! Why are you losing so much hair? Look. It’s all right. It’ll be fine soon. Pasha. Are you asleep? Don’t wake up.
I’ll just sit here, watch you. I would’ve come earlier,
but the doctors wouldn’t let me in. Pasha. You’re going to get better,
aren’t you? I love you, Pasha. Moscow. Mytinskoe cemetery. Major, how much longer? You asked me to come at 1 p.m.,
and it’s already 3 p.m.! -I have to go back soon.
-No haste. No one will leave before I give an order. Why did you call me so early? -Did you get what I said?
-I did. Damn it! Did their car get stalled or something? Boss, why don’t you
ask them over the radio? They are fine. Did you see how many people
are there in the cemetery? Attention, number one, they’re coming. Dibrov, contact number 4. Let Shuvalov
know he’s got permission to come in. And you make sure no witnesses are around! -Got it?
-Yes, comrade major. Come on, move in! Give way, please. Lower the casket Go ahead. Cry your heart out.
Or it’ll burst. Why don’t you stay?
You will have to get checked soon. No, I should go home.
Thank you for everything. Okay, I’ll be waiting
for you in 2 months. If you start feeling unwell,
let me know right away. Are you hiding something from me? -Have you got something on your mind?
-No, Sofya Mikhailovna, all is fine. Come in! We’re about to depart. It’s almost empty.
No one is eager to go to Kiev these days. May God be with you. Go. Like Gagarin said, let’s go! I will call you, Sofya Mikhailovna.
I will call you after the 20th! What’s after the 20th? I don’t hear you. It’s my payday on the 20th. Kiev city hospital -Who is next?
-Ok. Shyrokova Alevtina. 17 years old. First pregnancy.
Approximately 9 weeks pregnant. -Exactly 9 weeks today.
-Doesn’t matter at this point. That call from the Moscow hospital
was concerning her. Never had a check-up before. Yes, I remember. When are you planning to do this? Tomorrow. And what if I don’t want to? It’s out of your hands. Please, follow me. Please. Did you hear what doctors say? The women who got irradiated
bear underdeveloped children. Degenerates. Some are blind,
some are lacking limbs. Do you remember Shura from Pripyat? Her husband was putting off
the fire that night. She was on the 8th month when it happened. She recently delivered. Her son was born blind,
with adherent feet. God forbid! It’s better to get
an abortion than live with it. What are we supposed
to do with these kids? That’s exactly why they ransack the houses
looking for pregnant women. Their only option is an abortion.
There’s no other way. Lida! Lida! Wait!
Bring blood while you’re at it. -B RH.
-Okay. And check if Ishan Ibragimovitch is here.
If he is, ask him to come see me. I get it. I’ve also heard of other cases, however.
Remember Rufinka? She was in charge of the Komsomol? She was about to give birth
when the accident happened. I heard of her. When it blew up she was fishing with her
husband on the lake near the power plant. She was told to have
a C-section right away. She refused to do it though.
She fled to Crimea. Gave birth to a girl. My neighbor saw the picture,
says the kid is healthy. Why so? In some cases the child
takes all the sickness. And in some cases,
it’s the mother who suffers the blow. Those mothers don’t survive,
but their kids are healthy. Where are you headed? To the lady’s room. Run along now. Galina Stepanovna! Galina Stepanovna! Pripyat. Modern days. We are entering the city of Pripyat – the site of one of the
largest industrial disasters that took place in the
month of April, 1986. The disaster claimed a number of casualties
and it has only recently been revealed that over 8 million people were
severely irradiated that day. The catastrophe began at reactor four.
We are approaching it now. Let’s have a moment of silence
for those who suffered first opening the toll of suffering
on this terrible day. Have another look at this ghost town,
try to feel its pain. Feel its breath of death. Keep on moving, keep on moving. It’s not in your interests to linger here. Take your places in the bus. Keep on moving, come on. Alya + Pasha Alya’s and Pasha’s daughter
was born on January, 29, 1987. After her mother’s death Dasha
Derzhavina was raised in an orphanage. She now resides in Kiev.
