    This film is the continuation of The Sound of the Waves, a documentary consisting of interviews with the victims of the 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake (which was screened at the YIDFF 2011 “Cinema with Us” program). Filming continued for over a year, directors recorded the stories of March 11, 2011 told by people affected by the disaster in Shinchi-machi, Soma-gun, Fukushima and Kesen’numa City, Miyagi. In conversation with their wives, husbands, children, parents, close friends and coworkers, they call back the memories of that fateful day. This film surpasses the normal image of “victims,” and captures their individual “voices.”
