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. Matsumura san, along with his old father, takes care of animals abandoned in the wake of the nuclear accident. He was the first and the only person to refuse the order to evacuate. In his own way, by turning his life into a symbol and a testimony, he is militating for a denuclearized world.
