Synopsis:
In the evacuated zone around the nuclear plant of Fukushima, five years after the catastrophe, the village of Tomioka is still abandoned and empty of its five thousand inhabitants. A few rare individuals still live there, however, pacing a land burning with radiation. Yet the “decontamination” works in the zone seem pretty derisory and vain given the scale of the quake on both the human and environmental levels. On this sick, abandoned land, the peaceful existence and rational irrationality of these few diehards reminds us that a patch of land is, in the final analysis, our strongest bond to the world
