Synopsis >

Feature trailer for The Land of Hope. From award-winning Sono Sion (Guilty of Romance, Himizu) comes a powerful drama depicting the struggle of a family in Japan facing the harsh consequences of disasters both natural and unnatural. The events of the 2011 earthquake and tsunami serve as source material for this work of fiction. The Ono family live a frugal but happy life as dairy farmers in a peaceful village. One day the worst earthquake in history strikes, causing a nearby nuclear-power station to explode. Their neighbours, who live within the range of the station, are forcibly ordered to evacuate by the government. But the Ono family have only half of their property designated as within range. They then have to make a difficult decision whether to leave or to stay. Extremely moving, sometimes angry, and always empathetic, The Land of Hope is an unforgettable dramatic account of a great tragedy.
