Short film by German director and scriptwriter Marcus Schwenzel, starring German actors Hannes Jaenicke and Roman Knizhka and 11 year old actor from Kiev, Sasha Savenkov.
Seven-year-old Andrej scavenges the nuclear wasteland of Chernobyl for discarded documents to trade on the black market by his elder friend Artyom. An excellent script along with a truly touching performance from small Sasha Savenkov (Andrey), creates a deeply moving film about family, belonging, and manipulation.
