Plot Summary: March 11, 2011: a serious earthquake and tsunami hit Japan, crippling the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, releasing radiation, and turning the residents of Futaba into "nuclear refugees." The devastation experienced by the town dead livestock left to rot, crops abandoned, homes and businesses destroyed was infinitely worse than anything reported by the newspapers. A year later, 500 evacuees are still unable to return to their contaminated homes. The irony of this disaster occurring in a nation that experienced two nuclear bombs is not lost on the victims who poignantly question their responsibility for striking a Faustian bargain with nuclear power. "Nuclear Nation" suggests that a relatively small tragedy could one day be replicated on a much larger scale - perhaps in your own backyard.
