[ Story ]

Four filmmakers including director Mori Tatsuya, known for his string of documentaries and books about cult groups, visit Fukushima in the aftermath of the nuclear power plant accident and document the disaster area. They turn the camera on themselves, and raise questions about the ways of the media as well. Two weeks after the Great East Japan Earthquake, a car transporting the four filmmakers enters the disaster area. They give up filming when radiation levels exceed their expectations and head for towns wiped out by the tsunami, where they document the Self-Defense Forces and hospitals. At an evacuation center, they have complex feelings as they point their cameras at people in grief.
