SEASON 1: EPISODE 48
The small town of Ishinomaki was one of the hardest hit from the 2011 Japan earthquake and tsunami. The tsunami, which had traveled up to 8 kilometres inland had destroyed over 40% of the buildings and left the small town devastated.
Eight months after the tsunami, documentary filmmaker Paul Johannessen visited Ishinomaki and interviewed a number of residents to hear their stories of survival and to find out about the recovery effort.
What he found was a strong community who are working hard to rebuilt their lives and their town.
