Three years have passed since the devastating magnitude 9.0 earthquake and tsunami hit Japan on March 11, 2011, crippling the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant. Filmmaker Atsushi Funahashi follows the residents of Futaba, a town located three kilometers from the site of the explosion, who have been turned into “nuclear refugees” upon their forced relocation to a Tokyo suburb. Still today, many are unable to return to their contaminated homes and remain in temporary housing. As the film captures the town’s devastation – dead livestock left to rot, abandoned crops, destroyed homes and businesses, – Nuclear Nation questions the high cost of Japan’s nuclear power industry through the story of these displaced residents and their struggle to adapt to their new environment.
