Japan’s record-breaking 2011 earthquake and tsunami hit over 90 cities and took over 18,000 lives on Japan’s northeast coast. It also displaced over a million tons of debris but that hardly seemed to matter at the time. Within a year, that debris began showing up in the Pacific Northwest. However this time, beachcombers knew where these floating foreign oddities came from and what had been lost. This is the story of the folks in Canada and the US who’ve made it their mission to reunite these items with their original owners and reflect on not only what was lost but what can be regained.

Film will be followed by a Q&A with the filmmakers, John Choi and Nicolina Lanni
