Ukraine 2025: It’s been one year since the war with Russia ended, and the eastern part of the country has been reduced to a toxic wasteland. Here we find Sergiy, a former soldier who joins a volunteer organization travelling the countryside looking for body parts in order to identify and bury the dead. Striking up a relationship with his colleague Katya, he begins the long and difficult process of letting go of the war. Stark, grim and menacingly beautiful, ATLANTIS is a haunting sci-fi fable about present-day Europe.
