On March 11, 2011, a powerful earthquake 130 kilometres off the coast killed thousands of people and changed Japan's history forever. The country was once again confronted with one of its greatest demons: the nuclear nightmare. The accident at the Fukushima power plant caused the evacuation of some 100,000 people and an emergency comparable to the atomic bombs of the Second World War. Five years later, thousands of Japanese people are still living in barracks under the threat of radiation.
