Synopsis :

Overwhelmed by the events of 11 March 2011, the French director Keiko Courdy left immediately for Japan. She spent more than a year and a half talking to people in Fukushima.

In order to try to understand, she also interviewed many public figures active in Japanese society since the triple disaster: artists, architects, writers, investigative journalists, no nuke activists, Naoto Kan the erstwhile prime minister at the time of the accident… Their compelling testimonies highlight the contradictions and movements in a society that is recovering from massive trauma.

We all have to learn from what is happening. Many people dream of a « Yonaoshi », a « renewal », but is it possible?

Can we change our behavior?
