Synopsis

In the wake of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster, Malin (played by popular Brazilian actor Rodrigo Santoro, Westworld, Love, Actually), a Russian literature professor at The University of Havana, is sent to translate between Cuban doctors and 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 increasingly depressed. When he meets a child who tells him a story, Malin connects with the kids and finds his way through. Just as he adapts to his new job, the Berlin Wall falls and Cuba enters the deepest economic crisis the island has ever known.
But Malin is now so entrenched in the lives of the Chernobyl Children that he doesn’t notice his own family suffering. He must find his way back to his wife and child through the lessons he learns at the hospital – and become a better person on the way.
