In a future world that has been seemingly ravaged by war and poverty there exists a myth of hope amongst the people – a forbidden place known only as the Zone, the heart of which, if reached, grants one’s innermost desires. Two men, a writer and professor, hire someone known as a Stalker, a guide who can navigate the treacherous and confounding path that leads them to the Zone. Stalker is a film that has captured the essence of human desire so astutely that it is considered by many to be Tarkovsky’s magnum opus.
