The biggest earthquake Japan has ever experienced triggers the Fukushima nuclear reactor disaster. Alexandra has recently arrived in Tokyo as an executive with a French bank and is tasked with managing corporate profit and risk objectives as the crisis unfolds.

Confident, educated and accomplished, Alexandra is torn between business and government disinformation, loyalty to her work team and love of her family. Under pressure, she must choose between shifting management mandates and her personal honor and compassion in the face of emerging terror and anxiety.

Based on a true story and real events, Tokyo Shaking  will appeal to general audiences who enjoy drama and suspense, and especially those with interest in global cultural contrasts … the conflicts faced by women in business … banking, finance and international commerce … current events and contemporary Japanese history … business and government ethics … how we cope with natural disasters.
