When the Fukushima nuclear power plant failed, causing a massive leak of radiation, the citizens of the nearby town of Futaba were forced to relocate and begin their lives anew. Director Atsushi Funahashi's documentary Nuclear Nation follows those people as they deal with the destruction of their former city, which was built with pride about the power plant that caused its very demise, in a way that confronts the human cost of mistakes in the realm of nuclear power.
