Romania | Subtitles
After the Chernobyl nuclear catastrophe, people living in the northeast of Romania were exposed to high levels of radiation.

In Detail

Many children were born with deformities. Irina is faced with a hideous dilemma: to have the abortion demanded by her mother-in-law and risk imprisonment, or to risk giving birth to a malformed baby who would be taken away by the state and allowed to die.

Ligia Ciornei’s gruelling drama, shot in extended takes, is not for the faint-hearted but carries a strong message and is dedicated to the victims of Chernobyl as well as to those of ‘communism and fear’.
