City 40

Synopsis: Deep in Russia, there is an invisible city that houses thousands of men, women and children who live and work behind double barbed-wire fences monitored by armed guards. They are told that they are the creators of the nuclear shield and saviors of the world. They are told that everyone is an enemy. In this hidden world, a mother risks her life to take us inside Russia's largest nuclear city.

when they asked him too many questions.

"My rights are not violated."

I like people who are stubborn

and firm in their positions.

But I don't like crazy people.

I work in two fields,

human rights in closed cities...

and the rights of people

affected by radiation.


when Romashov comes, let's comfort him.

With Romashov, we'll have a therapeutic

talk. Did he get the court decision?

No. Today he will come

and tell us everything.

I asked him to please come.

They have done something. Poor thing.

He asked me to call. I called the judge.

It seemed like she was writing

the decision that moment.

And she asked me,

"Nadezhda, please, explain to me..."

-Who was it?

-Let's not say who it was. A judge.

I thought to myself,

well, read the name of the law!

I run an organization,

"Planet of Hopes," in Ozersk.

Officially, the authorities

don't recognize us,

because we're "enemies of the city."

But whenever a city officer,

or their friends or relatives run into

serious legal problems,

they come to us,

because no one else would help.

For many people,

there is no one else to confide in.

I work in the reception room,

greeting people.

It's fun working with her.

She has the same character as myself.

She doesn't have a husband, or parents.

She manages everything...

her work, her home, her kids.

I simply cannot leave this person.

My health is no good, I buried my son,

he had caused me anguish for two years.

And, how should I put it...

I have had a Mayak

related illness since birth.

I have no health left.

She has helped me

and now I can't refuse her,

I am helping her.

Ozersk has been

a closed city since day one.

Originally the Soviet Union

was looking for a site

to produce plutonium for weapons.

Such a site was found,

a spot in the woods.
