A man has decided to stay and live in the forbidden zone of Fukushima. He looks after his cattle in the silence of this nature invaded by radioactivity. In an atmosphere reminiscent of science-fiction, the vegetation has taken over the city, while the invisible evil continues to hover and bags of radioactive waste pile up. Here, Naoto attempts to live at least a half-life.
