Synopsis: 
In the wake of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster, Malin, a Russian literature professor at The University of Havana, is sent to translate for Cuban doctors treating children sent from the USSR for medical treatment. Torn from the abstract world of academia and forced into the relentlessly real world of medicine, Malin becomes so entrenched in the lives of the Chernobyl Children that he doesn’t notice his own family’s suffering. He must find a way to overcome his depression and go back to his wife and children.
