In her search for answers after the devastating 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami, 17-year-old Haru sets out on a long journey across Japan to the town where the disaster swept away her brother and parents. The road trip takes the young woman, who is still haunted by the death of loved ones, from Hiroshima to Tokyo to Fukushima and eventually, all the way to Ōtsuchi in Iwate Prefecture, where her family home once stood. On the way she encounters fascinating people, heart-breaking and heart-warming stories, and tales of lives saved and lives lost. She eventually finds a beautiful garden, where a mysterious telephone box provides an unimaginable gift to those who step inside.

About the JASDFW 3/11 Resilience Series
This 3-program series commemorates a decade since the Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami. Programs will demonstrate the resolve of people in Tohoku and how the region has recovered since 2011. The Japan-America Society of Dallas/Fort Worth came to the region’s aid by raising over $187,000 for relief, which supported the Mori no sato nursing home in Sendai. The metropolises of Dallas and Sendai have also been International Friendship Cities since 1997. This series is presented by the Japan-America Society of Dallas/Fort Worth with support from the Consulate-General of Japan in Houston. Please also see our Program 1: A Mission of Kataribe – The Memory of the Earthquake Should Not Be Forgotten and the Program 3: A Resurgent Region – Tohoku’s Recovery Since 2011.
