In Fukushima today, the Japanese face an invisible enemy : a radioactivity that compromises the future of the region as well as that of their country. The population is starting to rise up and voice their despair and their anger. By following these children and their parents, shut away in their homes, in their daily activity, we will see how these families plan to survive this catastrophe and prepare for the future.
