An EON Production in Progress

Filmed over eight years, Shutdown presents an in-depth look at the people who spring into action after learning their nearby nuclear power plant could cause catastrophic damage. Spurred by the Fukushima disaster, the film follows the struggles and triumphs of five citizen activists, culminating in the disturbing challenge that confronts the entire nation as aging reactors are shutdown - what to do with thousands of tons of lethal nuclear waste that will be highly radioactive essentially forever.
