In the evacuated zone around the nuclear plant of Fukushima, five years after the “catastrophe”, a few rare individuals still live on this land burning with radiation. The seemingly irrational yet peaceful existence of these diehards reminds us that, as a last resort, a patch of land is our strongest bond to the world.
