Futaba is a small town in the shadow of Fukushima. Since the 1960s, Futaba had been promised prosperity with tax breaks and major subsidies compensating for the presence of the power plant. In the aftermath of the 2011 tsunami, residents of the town were relocated to an empty school in the Tokyo suburbs. From this place of exile, Nuclear Nation follows the people of Futuba as they try and adapt to their new environment, and come to terms with the loss of their homeland. Through their agonies and frustrations, this film questions the real costs of nuclear energy.
