Podniesinski fotografiert seit 2008 regelmässig in Tschernobyl. Als er zum ersten Mal da war, hätte er nie geglaubt, dass sich je wieder eine ähnliche Katastrophe zutragen könnte, schon gar nicht in Japan. Doch es ist wieder geschehen. Vier Jahre nach dem Unglück beschliesst er, nach Fukushima zu reisen, nicht mit dem Ziel, die ganzen Ereignisse um das Desaster ein weiteres Mal zu erzählen, sondern um dort hinzugehen, wo bis im März 2011 das Leben stattgefunden hatte. Vier Jahre nach der Katastrophe hat er die orangen und roten Zonen besucht, also diese Bereiche, wo die Strahlung am stärksten ist, in denen keinerlei Aufräum- und Dekontaminierungsarbeiten vollzogen werden. Es sind die Orte, wo die Zeit stehen geblieben ist.

Entlang der Küste wurden fast alle Gebäude vom Tsunami zerstört. Ein Schulhaus, das ausgerechnet von Tepco finanziert wurde, konnte sich den zerstörerischen Wellen widersetzen.
