Inhalt

England!

On 26 April 1986, reactor 4 of Chernobyl nuclear power station in the Ukraine exploded. In the following months, thousands of young conscripted soldiers were drafted into the area from all over the Soviet Union and deployed for the clean-up operation. Few of them were aware of the danger they were in.

England! is the story of the adventurer Valeri Sikorski from Chernobyl. When the doctors tell him that his days are numbered, Valeri takes off. England is his destination. But first he travels to Berlin to pick up his old friend Victor. He wants to take him along. But Victor has disappeared. And Valeri will look for him.
