The story revolves around actual events; the nuclear disaster at Chernobyl, the appointment of Gorbachev as leader of the Soviet Union, the demise of Communism and the break-up of the USSR. Kushner provides an in-depth examination of what went wrong with the world's first socialist country. In doing so he analyzes what it means to be a Slav and what exactly is the spiritual genius of the Slavic people.
