Nuclear Cattle


This is the story of innocent cattle farmers forced from the hills they’ve called home for decades due to the nuclear disaster at Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant. Not willing to go along with the government’s plan to slaughter their livestock and livelihoods, the farmers decide to keep their cattle alive as a symbol of resistance in the fight to rid Japan of nuclear power. But the feeding cost is a huge burden. Stripped of their homes and livelihoods and fighting a losing battle against time, many farmers have reached a breaking point. Now, the „radioaktive“ cows became a symbol of the fight against nuclear power.
