The effects of natural disasters such as the Great East Japan Earthquake and its accompanying tsunami last far longer than the days, months and years immediately following, and for many who
endure such hardships, the impact is never forgotten. But what if, somehow, some of those who thought they’d lost everything could be reunited with some part of their former lives? This doc
follows those who are tracking, collecting and itemizing the debris from the devastating event, and attempting to return cherished items to those whose lives were irrevocably changed by it.
