Chernobyl, 1986. Without humans, how will dogs survive?
As families fled the nuclear disaster, they were forced to leave their pets behind. Without people, nature began to return to the woods surrounding the power plant. Now teeming with lynx, bear and wolves, the overgrown forest is no place for dogs.
Zoya, and her pups Misha and Bratan, need to learn to survive in the wild, whatever it takes. But can dogs ever really live without humans and humans without them?
