On March 11th, 2011, a magnitude-9 earthquake triggered a series of tsunami that swallowed Northeast Japan. Within days, the Fukushima Dai-ichi Nuclear Power Plant had multiple meltdowns, turning villages into ghost towns and putting Japan at a crossroad of energy policy. Producer Emily Taguchi traveled to the town of Minami-Soma to follow the efforts of two Fukushima natives as they break from the past and chart a new course for the devastated region.
