The Bomb

«THE BOMB» (2020)

Mikhail Rubin, a brilliant scientist, finds himself in a camp because of a personal conflict with Commissar Beria. But suddenly Rubin is released: his best friend and colleague Kirill Muromtsev recommends Mikhail to a secret project to create a Soviet atomic bomb, and the physicist's candidacy is approved by Academician Kurchatov. Mikhail returns to Moscow and learns that while he was in a camp, his fiancée Anna Galeeva managed to become Kirill's wife. To fulfill the state's assignment at any cost, the young scientists will have to work together despite their personal drama. They will face a race on the brink of human possibilities, a deadly risk and the decisive day of the first test. Physicists had no right to make a mistake - the future of the entire world was being decided at the Semipalatinsk test site. They had to win.
