After 3.11, 200,000 people gathered in Tokyo to protest against nuclear power. This was the first protest of its scale in Japan since the 1970s, and the vast majority of these people were not career activists but ordinary citizens. Through protest footage and interviews with people at the heart of the movement, this intimate and powerful grassroots documentary tells the story of early post-3.11 activism, showing how this historically significant phenomenon occurred, and why.
