[ Story ]

Personal documentary from director Kana Tomoko, who has covered environmental issues and people suffering misfortune in films like Beautiful Islands. This film documents the pregnancy she discovered immediately after the March 11, 2011 earthquake and follows her experiences until the baby's birth.
In the aftermath of the Tohoku earthquake and tsunami, Kana was 4 kilometers from the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant documenting the people who were forced to evacuate because of the nuclear power plant accident. Then, she discovers that she is pregnant. Her first pregnancy at the age of forty takes her by surprise, and she worries about the impact of radiation on her unborn child.
