"Nuclear disaster." The words refer to Chernobyl, Fukushima. Each time, a portion of land is irradiated, contaminated and then evacuated. The worst, however, has not yet happened: the loss of an entire state. An entire economy. A whole culture, a language spoken only there. A reactor overheats, then explodes... and an entire state becomes a no-man's land. Literally evacuated from all its inhabitants, country of no one no more. This country is Luxembourg, threatened since 1986 by a French nuclear power plant located just beyond its borders: Cattenom. The third most powerful power plant in France, tenth in the world. Obstinately kept in operation by France despite a disturbingly long list of accidents. Where Denmark has secured the closure of the Swedish which threatened Copenhagen, Luxembourg seems helpless faced with the spectre of its own disappearance.
