Five years after the Fukushima nuclear disaster, Naoto Matsumura, a Japanese farmer ekes out a solitary existence within the radiation red zone. Here, the blowing wind is the soundtrack to Naoto’s lonely days, spent cultivating his land and feeding his cattle. Naoto fights to build a new life in this post-apocalyptic landscape, fearlessly facing the silent danger of radioactivity. He is a guardian of the past and the symbol of humanity’s need for a change.
