LAND OF HOPE depicts one family’s struggle to stay together in extraordinary circumstances. The action takes place in the Nagashima prefecture (a fictional location), a small town butted up against a nuclear power plant. Yoichi Ono (Jun Murakami) and his wife Izumi (Megumi Kagurazaka) lead a peaceful existence tending to the farm run by Yoichi’s parents, Yasuhiko (Isao Natsuyagi) and Chieko (Naoko Otani). One day, an earthquake disrupts the reactor at the nearby nuclear power plant and their lives are suddenly and forever changed. The story has an incredible realism and was filmed in the deserted Fukushima.
