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.
