The Polygon reveals the legacy of the Soviet Union’s extensive nuclear testing program at the Semipalatinsk Test Site in Kazakhstan. There, over 600 nuclear bombs were detonated from 1949 to 1991. The film revisits the history of these tragic Cold War experiments, and profiles the unfortunate victims who remain today and are still suffering with little or no compensation.
