Synopsis: “At 2:46 p.m. on 11 March, 2011, a magnitude 9.0 earthquake with a maximum seismic intensity of 7 (recorded at Kurihara-cho, Miyagi prefecture) struck approximately 130 kilometers off the Sanriku coast. One hour after this earthquake shook the islands of Japan, a 15-meter-tall tsunami swallowed up the Fukushima nuclear power plant in an instant. But that was only the start of the nightmare. With its cooling function lost, the power plant fell into a dangerous and uncontrollable state.”

Or is it all related to a devastating terrorist attack that shook the city one and a half years ago? The answer lies in the policeman’s fall, but the trigger for this must first be faced – and thus reveals the true contents of ‘Pandora’s Box’.”
