​Welcome to “City 40”, whose residents have often enjoyed a higher than average standard living than other Soviet citizens - before dying prematurely of radiation poisoning. Director Samira Goetchel uses secret filming to take us inside City 40, one of many Russian cities which has been closed to the outside world for decades. We follow some of the braver inhabitants battling for their voices to be heard, in a chilling manifestation of the nuclear arms race.
