Life Near The Radiation Zone

Ryo Souma is an art teacher in Japan. His school is about 35 miles from the damaged nuclear reactor, so he and his students wear face masks to guard against radioactive particles. They wear the masks to school, and during lessons. He says that the stories of those who lost lives and loved ones in the tsunami are being told … but his story, the story of the impact of radiation, is not.
