The Soviet Union, 1978 to 1990. Andrei Chikatilo, serial killer. Official Body Count: 53. Actual Body Count: Will never be known. Chernobyl Reactor Unit #4, nuclear power plant. Official Body Count: 31. Actual Body Count: Will never be known. Two true stories of murder, which are one true story of lies and corruption. A portrait of a country so determined to prove its superiority and perfection that it refuses to acknowledge the possibility of its own errors, to the point of allowing mass murder to occur because to try to prevent it would be to admit that it was possible. A dark, sardonic cry of pain against those in power who prefer ideology to reality.
