Deep within the Zone—a bleak and devastated forbidden landscape—lies a mysterious room with the power to grant the profoundest wishes of those strong enough to make the hazardous journey there. Desperate to reach the room, a scientist and a writer approach the Stalker, one of the few trackers able to navigate the Zone’s menacing terrain, and begin a dangerous trek into the unknown. A stunning new digital restoration showcases the painstaking attention to detail that characterizes this visually astonishing epic.
