On March 11, 2011 a magnitude 9.0 earthquake struck off northern Japan sending a massive tsunami inland, destroying countless homes and lives, and eventually engulfing the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant. As waves penetrate the facility, shift supervisor Izaki and site superintendent Yoshida struggle to stabilize the meltdown in the face of overheating reactors, corporate greed and government inaction. A thrilling, edge-of-your-seat interpretation of real-life events based on Ryusho Kodata’s bestselling novel of the men and women – the “Fukushima 50” – who stayed behind to avert a catastrophe of global magnitude. An epic, big-budget tale of courage and self-sacrifice featuring a cast of Japan’s top actors.
