INT. CONTROL ROOM - REACTOR #4 - NIGHT

530

530

THE LED DISPLAY: 1600. And then... it begins lowering.



159015701510...

Akimov and Toptunov stare up from the panel-- still

shoulder to shoulder, hands on buttons.

29.


THE DISPLAY - 1450... 1395...

AKIMOV


Easy now. Slow it down.

Toptunov nods. Wipes sweat from his head. Makes an

adjustment.

AKIMOV


Good. Like that.

In the B.G. - Dyatlov PACES. Shaking his head.

DYATLOV

You should have been finished by



now.

AKIMOV


We're following protocol for

reduction rate.

DYATLOV

You're procrastinating. There are



ten other men in this plant who

would have done it already.

Toptunov glances at Akimov, but Akimov doesn't look back.

Just keeps his eyes on the panel.

AKIMOV

to Toptunov



(

)

Keep working. You're doing fine.



Dyatlov takes a cigarette from his pack. Tosses the pack on

to the table. Annoyed.

DYATLOV

Kirschenbaum. Come get me when these



old women are ready.

KIRSCHENBAUM

Yes, Comrade Dyatlov.

Dyatlov EXITS. Slams the door behind him.



INT. CORRIDOR OUTSIDE CONTROL ROOM 4 -

531

531

CONTINUOUS

Dyatlov steps into the corridor. Lights his cigarette.

Checks his watch. Then looks through the window by the

landing, which faces out toward:

THE LIGHTS OF PRIPYAT - just a few on at this late hour.

30.


INT. CONTROL ROOM - REACTOR #4 -

532

532

MINUTES LATER

Kirschenbaum and Stolyarchuk wait quietly. Stolyarchuk

checks a meter... makes an adjustment to his panel.

Toptunov and Akimov continue to work their panel.

THE DISPLAY: 775... 765... 755...

AKIMOV


Okay. Very slow now. Let's coast

down to 700.

THE DISPLAY: 745... 725... 715...

AKIMOV


Whoa whoa whoa... slow!

TOPTUNOV


confused

(

)



I didn't move any rods there...

THE DISPLAY: 700... 680... 640... 590...

Akimov looks at the display. Utterly bewildered.

AKIMOV


What is this?

Toptunov puts his hands up.

TOPTUNOV

I'm not even touching it.

THE DISPLAY: 570... 550... 540...

INT. CORRIDOR OUTSIDE CONTROL ROOM 4 -

533

533

CONTINUOUS

As Dyatlov finishes his cigarette, Akimov emerges from the

control room. Dyatlov turns to him and can immediately see

from Akimov's face that something's gone wrong. Again.

All he wanted was one fucking moment of quiet, and now...?

INT. CONTROL ROOM - REACTOR #4 -

534

534

CONTINUOUS

Dyatlov storms in, followed by Akimov. And the first thing

Dyatlov sees is:

THE DISPLAY: 520... 515... 510...

31.


AKIMOV

We did everything right. I think

maybe the core is poisoned...

DYATLOV


If you thought the core was poisoned

then you DIDN'T do everything right,

because you're CHOKING MY REACTOR!

Get it back up!

Akimov knows there's no sense in debating. Just:

AKIMOV


If we switch off LAC, it's possible

we could get more control...

DYATLOV

Do it. Go!



Akimov rushes back to Toptunov.

AKIMOV


Disable local automatic control, go

to global...

Toptunov hesitates, nervous--

AKIMOV


Leonid.

Right. Okay. Toptunov turns a series of switches. Presses

some buttons.

TOPTUNOV


LAC disabled. Global control

activated.

Everyone raises their head to:

THE DISPLAY: 500... 440... 260... 220...

Toptunov backs away from the panel in disbelief.

DYATLOV


What did you do?

TOPTUNOV


I did what you said! I switched--

DYATLOV


LOOK AT IT!

THE DISPLAY: 110... 75... 55...

32.


AKIMOV

I don't understand....

THE DISPLAY: 35... 32... 30... and then holds.

DYATLOV


You fucking amateurs. You stalled

the reactor. HOW THE FUCK DID YOU

GET THIS JOB?

Toptunov puts his head in his hands. He looks like he's

about to cry. Akimov turns back to Dyatlov.

AKIMOV


Comrade--

DYATLOV


You're going to tell me you did

everything right again, you

incompetent arsehole?

Akimov slumps. It's over.

AKIMOV

I apologize for this unsatisfactory



result.

"Unsatisfactory result?" The phrase only serves to disgust

Dyatlov even further.

Akimov turns back to the panel.

DYATLOV

What are you doing?



Akimov look at Dyatlov. Isn't it obvious?

AKIMOV


We have to shut it all the way down.

Dyatlov is staring intently at him, but he's now strangely

calm, which is somehow worse.

DYATLOV


No.

AKIMOV


what?

(

)



But... we're in a xenon pit. We have

to shut down, wait 24 hours--

33.


DYATLOV

No. We're doing the test tonight.

Raise the power to 700.

AKIMOV


We can't increase power from

here. The rules...!

DYATLOV

Don't talk to me about



rules.

AKIMOV


If we fall from 80% of

power, we can't increase--

DYATLOV

No, no-- we fell from 50% of



power.

AKIMOV


From fifty percent is worse!

DYATLOV


The rules don't say 50.

There is no rule.

AKIMOV

Comrade Dyatlov, I apologize, but  



what you're saying makes no sense.

DYATLOV


Raise the power.

Akimov looks down. Nerves rising. Dyatlov has gone too far.

AKIMOV

No.


Dyatlov can't believe it. He almost admires Akimov's gall.

AKIMOV


I won't do it. It isn't safe.

Toptunov straightens next to Akimov. Backing him up.

Dyatlov walks slowly toward them. Calm. Nodding, as if

considering their words. The other men watch in fear.

DYATLOV

Safety first. Always. I've been



saying that for 25 years. That's how

long I've done this job. 25 years.

Is that longer than you, Akimov?

AKIMOV


Yes.

DYATLOV


Is it much longer?

AKIMOV


Yes.

34.


Dyatlov turns to Toptunov.

DYATLOV


And you? With your mother's tit

barely out of your mouth?

Dyatlov shifts his granite gaze between them as he speaks.

DYATLOV


If I say it's safe, it's safe. If

the two of you disagree... you don't

have to work here. And you won't.

But not just here. You won't work at

Kursk. Or Ignalina. Or Leningrad, or

Novo-Voronezh. You won't work

anywhere ever again. I'll see to it.

I think you know-- I will see to it.

beat

(

)



Raise the power.

The room is silent. The display still reads 30. No one says

a word. Then... Akimov picks up a LOG BOOK from the panel.

Hands it to Dyatlov.

AKIMOV

I would like you to record your



command into the--

Dyatlov SLAPS it from Akimov's hand. It falls to the floor.

DYATLOV

Raise the power.



Dyatlov returns to his desk in the center of the room.

Akimov takes a long, slow breath, then turns to Toptunov.

They've lost. What other choice remains?

AKIMOV


Together, then.

Toptunov nods. All right. Together. They move their hands

toward the controls, and:

DYATLOV (O.S.)

I wasn't even there.

INT. TRIAL ROOM - DAY

535

535

CLOSE ON: Dyatlov. Hair thinner, moustache weaker... but in

his eyes, the same burning anger.

35.


Legasov looks back from his board. Did he hear that right?

LEGASOV


What?

DYATLOV


I wasn't in the room when they

raised the power.

LEGASOV

If you weren't in the room, then



where were you?

Stepashin rises. Annoyed. At Legasov.

STEPASHIN

Comrade Legasov, you are a witness,

not a prosecutor. I will ask the

questions here.

Legasov backs off. Chastened. Of course. This is a show.

Play your role and no other.

Stepashin turns to Dyatlov.

STEPASHIN

If you weren't in the room, then

where were you?

Dyatlov shifts his eyes away from his interrogator. Shrugs.

DYATLOV


The toilet.

STEPASHIN

The toilet. Comrade Khomyuk

interviewed everyone who was in the

control room that night. They all

told the same story.

Stepashin picks up a packet of typed transcripts. Flips

through the pages, then reads:

STEPASHIN

"I knew what Dyatlov ordered was

wrong, but if I didn't do what he

said, I would be fired." Leonid

Toptunov, one day before he died.

No, Comrade Dyatlov, you were in the

room. You ordered them to raise the

power. This is a fact.

36.


Scherbina suddenly starts COUGHING. He gets up, and moves

swiftly to the back of the room. Can't make it stop.

And as if that reminded Stepashin they've been at this for

hours-- he checks his watch, then nods to the Judge. Fine.



Call a recess. It's clear who's really in charge here.

JUDGE KADNIKOV

Court is now in recess. Thirty

minutes.


Kadnikov RISES, everyone else rises in turn, and we cut to:

EXT. CITY OF CHERNOBYL - PARK -

536

536

LATER

An inept imitation statue of MICKEY MOUSE smiles

grotesquely through peeling paint.

The small park is just dust and dead grass now. A rusty

swing set. A jungle gym.

ON LEGASOV - across the street. Behind him in the near

distance, a small gathering of trialgoers on recess are

clustered. Smoking.

He sees ahead of him... the back of a man sitting on a

bench, alone, in the park. Another cough.

SHCHERBINA - sits on the bench, staring out at the late

afternoon sun. Legasov takes a seat next to him.

SHCHERBINA

Do you know anything about this

town? Chernobyl?

LEGASOV


Not really. No.

SHCHERBINA

It was mostly Jews and Poles. The

Jews were killed in pogroms, Stalin

forced out the Poles, then the Nazis

came and murdered whoever was left.

looks around

(

)



But after the war, people came here

to live anyway. They knew the ground

beneath their feet was soaked in

blood, but they didn't care. Dead

Jews, dead Poles, but not them. No

one ever thinks it will happen to

them. But here we are.

37.


Shcherbina shows Legasov his handkerchief. It's mottled

with blood.

LEGASOV

How much time?



SHCHERBINA

Maybe a year. They're calling it a

"long illness." That doesn't seem

very long to me. I know-- you told

me. I believed you. At first. But--

time passed, and I didn't think it

would happen to me.

beat


(

)

I wasted it. I wasted it all. For



nothing.

LEGASOV


For nothing?

Shcherbina puts his hand up. Don't.

SHCHERBINA

Do you remember the morning I first

called you? Do you remember how

unconcerned I was? I don't believe

much that comes out of the Kremlin,

but when they told me they were

putting me in charge of the cleanup,

and they said it wasn't serious, I

believed them. Do you know why?

Legasov doesn't want to answer. But:

LEGASOV

Because they put you in charge.



Shcherbina nods. Of course Legasov knows. Everyone knows.

SHCHERBINA

I am an inconsequential man, Valera.

That's all I've ever been. I hoped

one day that I would matter. But I

didn't.


turns to Legasov

(

)



I just stood next to people who did.

Legasov stares back in disbelief.

LEGASOV

There are other scientists like me.



Any one of them could have done what

I did. But you--

38.

(

)



LEGASOV (cont'd)

Everything we asked for, everything

we needed. Men. Material. Lunar

rovers? Who else could have done

these things? They heard me, but

they listened to you. Of all the

ministers and all the deputies-- the

entire congregation of obedient

fools-- they mistakenly sent us the

one good man.

beat


(

)

For god's sake, Boris-- you were the



one who mattered the most.

Shcherbina is overwhelmed. And here and now, in a forgotten

park, in a dead city... absolution.

He looks back through tears at the land. The sky. His

country. The air fills his lungs.

SHCHERBINA

It is beautiful...

INT. TRIAL ROOM -

537

537

LATER

The crowd filters back in, including Legasov and

Shcherbina. They return to the expert witness table, where

Khomyuk is waiting.

Khomyuk sees the change on Legasov's face. Something has

moved in him. She sees him look back once again to make

sure that The Six are still there in the audience.

Then EVERYONE RISES as the JUDGES return and take their

seats. Kadnikov nods to Stepashin, who turns to Legasov.

STEPASHIN

Comrade Legasov.

Legasov walks back to the whiteboard. There's purpose in

his step now. His voice is stronger.

LEGASOV

The time is 38 past midnight. The



reactor is nearly shut down, but the

operators of Reactor 4 are locked on

a path that leads directly to

disaster. There is no way to turn

back. They do not yet know it, but

the die is cast.

39.


Legasov picks up a BLUE PLACARD. A second "Xenon Poisoning"

(B5) card. He adds it to the board.

LEGASOV


At 30 megawatts, xenon is still being

created, but none of it is burning

away. The reactor is drowning in

poison. To make matters worse--

--he REMOVES the bottom two red placards, "Positive Void

Coefficent" (R2) and "Nuclear Fission" (R3).

LEGASOV

--the reactor isn't hot enough to



produce sufficient steam.

THE BOARD: One red placard, five large blue ones.

LEGASOV

The only way to safely raise power



from this state is to do it very,

very slowly over the course of 24

hours. But Dyatlov wants it done

now. Akimov and Toptunov have only

one course of action. They begin

pulling control rods out. Dozens at

a time. Halfway out, three quarters

of the way out, and the power still

does not budge. So they begin to

pull them all the way out.

beat


(

)

There were 211 control rods in



Reactor 4. Akimov and Toptunov

completely withdrew 205.

Legasov REMOVES the first blue placard - "Control Rods"

(B1).

LEGASOV


Remember... control rods are the

brakes of this car. Of 211 rods,

only six now remain in the reactor.

As for the fuel--

Legasov REMOVES another blue placard - "Negative

Temperature Coefficient" (B3).

LEGASOV

--it's gone cold, so the negative



temperature coefficient is no longer

weighing down the reactivity.

(MORE)

40.


beat

(

)



LEGASOV (cont'd)

And even still-- the xenon poisoning

is so strong, the best they can do

is raise the power to 200 megawatts.

Turns back to the room once more.

LEGASOV


The control rods are out. The

emergency system is disconnected.

The reactor is now a grenade without

a pin, and the only thing keeping it

in check is water... and xenon. It

is 1 in the morning. The test is

minutes away.

INT. CONTROL ROOM - REACTOR #4 - NIGHT

538

538

AKIMOV - punches buttons. Flips some switches. Constantly

moving his eyes back and forth between the console and the

LED POWER OUTPUT display, which holds at 200.

He slumps. Turns back to Dyatlov, who sits at the desk in

the center of the room, casually smoking.

AKIMOV

I'm sorry, but this is all we can



get. 200 megawatts. We've pulled

almost everything out.

Dyatlov exhales slowly. Thinks. Then:

DYATLOV


Well, if that's what we have, that's

what we have.

AKIMOV

But the test requires 700--



DYATLOV

ignores Akimov

(

)

Stolyarchuk, let's get ready. Switch



on pump four.

AKIMOV


Wait a second--

DYATLOV


Stolyarchuk!

Stolyarchuk hesitates.

41.


AKIMOV

We barely have any steam as it is.

The turbine is going too slow for

the test to deliver valid--

DYATLOV

It's enough.



AKIMOV

--and if we add more water, there

will be even less steam--

DYATLOV


I SAID IT'S ENOUGH. I know what I'm

doing. Stolyarchuk.

Stolyarchuk relents, and hits switches while Kirschenbaum

watches-- utterly confused by this course of action.

STOLYARCHUK

Main Pump 4 is connected. We should

warn Khodemchuk... the pipes are

going to be jumping.

DYATLOV

Never mind him. Kirschenbaum--



But he's cut off by: AN ALARM - bleating from the panel.

Dyatlov puts his hands up. What now?

STOLYARCHUK

The steam in the separator drum is

too low-- five atmospheres...

DYATLOV


All right, let's all help him. Get

it up as best you can.

Stolyarchuk mutters to himself.

STOLYARCHUK

We should stop.

DYATLOV


yells

(

)



And turn that fucking thing off!

Akimov moves to another panel. Flips some override

switches. The alarm CEASES. Dyatlov checks the display.

Still 200. Now he looks at the clock. 1:07.

DYATLOV

You have fifteen minutes.



42.

Akimov, Toptunov, Kirschenbaum and Stolyarchuk work on the

panels, trying to get the steam back in balance.

LEGASOV (V.O.)

Fifteen minutes.



INT. TRIAL ROOM - NOW

539

539

Legasov stands by the board.

LEGASOV

They might as well have had fifteen



days. The problem they were facing

was not solvable. The power was too

low. The water was too high. The

test was already ruined. The results

would have been useless. But Dyatlov

didn't care. All he wanted to do was

report a completed test.

1:22. Less than two minutes remain.



INT. REACTOR #4 FACILITY - VARIOUS - 1:22

540

540

 AM

--OFFICE - YUVCHENKO sits at his desk flipping through a

technical manual.

LEGASOV (V.O.)

Yuvchenko, mechanical engineer, is

in his office.

--REACTOR HALL OBSERVATION ROOM - PEREVOZCHENKO looks out

over the HUGE REACTOR LID, 15m in diameter. The lid is made

up of 2,000 cubes of individual steel-capped channels.

LEGASOV (V.O.)

Perevozchenko, reactor section

foreman, is in the refueling hall,

high above the 1,000 ton steel

reactor cover.

--ROOM 604 - SHASHENOK is inspecting equipment. Taking

notes on his clipboard.

LEGASOV (V.O.)

Shashenok, automatic systems

adjuster, is in room 604.

--THE PUMP ROOM - where VIKTOR (Degtaryenko) stands by a

rats' nest of pipes and gauges. They're SHUDDERING.

43.


LEGASOV (V.O.)

Degtaryenko...

Viktor looks across the room at:

LEGASOV (V.O.)

...and Khodemchuk, circulation

operators, are in the pump room.

Khodemchuk gives Viktor a baffled look. What is this?

LEGASOV (V.O.)

None of them have been told about

the test. None of them know what is

about to happen.

INT. CONTROL ROOM - REACTOR #4 - 1:22:30

541

541

Toptunov stands by a large DOT-MATRIX PRINTER as it slowly

ejects a sheet of data.

LEGASOV (V.O.)

1:22 and 30 seconds. Toptunov sees a

report from the reactor's SKALA

computer system. Based on the

absence of sufficient control rods,

the computer is recommending the

reactor be shut down.

Toptunov hands the printout to Akimov, who reads it, frets,

then hands it to Dyatlov. Dyatlov doesn't take it. Just

looks at it. Barely.

DYATLOV


Of course it's saying that. It

doesn't know we're running a test.

oddly cheerful

(

)



All right boys. Another few minutes,

and it will all be over.

Kirschenbaum, when you're ready?

Kirschenbaum turns back to his panel. Deep breath. Akimov

and Toptunov walk back to their panels. Toptunov looks over

at Akimov. Akimov doesn't look back. Just:

AKIMOV

We did everything right.



Kirschenbaum reaches for a switch. Then:

44.


KIRSCHENBAUM

Oscillograph on. Closing Number 8

STOLYARCHUK
