Chelyabinsk-40, an atomic weapons factory, was a top secret installation, and both its accidents, and the lethal effects on the local ecology were a closely guarded secret, even from the people most affected by it. Everyone noticed that people were dying of cancer in their forties and that birth defects were rampant, but no one knew why. Now that the truth is out, how are these villagers coping?||
