"PRIPYAT" is a gripping historical drama that combines elements of romance, tragedy, and suspense to create a visually stunning and emotionally captivating story set against the backdrop of the Chernobyl disaster.
In a perilous and clandestine act, the Russian government commanded a ballet ensemble, blissfully unaware of the radiation that embraced them, to grace the treacherous stage of Pripyat, Ukraine’s exclusion zone.
Sera, a renowned ballerina, and Sergei, a gifted pianist, are deeply in love and share dreams of a brighter future in America. However, their plans are jeopardized when Sergei's childhood friend, Max, becomes entangled in dangerous criminal activities, catching the attention of Marat Medvedev, a loyal Russian KGB mercenary.
As Sergei and Sera continue their journey as members of a state-sponsored dance troupe, they become unwitting pawns in a dangerous game of betrayal and intrigue.
