In March 2011, the largest tsunami in Japan's history triggered the Fukushima nuclear disaster. Newly transferred to Tokyo from Hong Kong, French executive Alexandra (Karin Viard) finds herself in the middle of the confusion and panic of the crisis. While government officials scramble to assess the full extent of the damage, local media downplays the disaster.

While senior management flees back to France, Alexandra stays behind out of a sense of moral duty to her colleagues in the Tokyo office. However, as the crisis escalates and radioactive clouds threaten the city, Alexandra is increasingly torn between the demands of management and the desire to protect her colleagues and family.

TOKYO SHAKING is a complex exploration of the struggle between personal duty and corporate bureaucracy in the shadow of a modern environmental catastrophe.

“Incredibly engrossing and urgent. Karen Viard has an absolutely magnetic presence.” —In the Seats
