This film illuminates how several individuals have decided to live in the wake of the disaster in Fukushima, although the wisdom they impart resounds with viewers on a deeper level, beyond literal circumstances. Coincidentally, most of the interviewees aremusicians. Their musical performances reveal a deep core of dignity and honesty, and weave together some very diverse points of view. Having lost their homes, their commitment to stay in touch with music, their most intimate love, has been a key to their endurance and evolution.
Finding and nurturing one’s happiness to continue living a healthy life is a fundamental human concern. No matter where we live, we must face this. The people in Fukushima have such inspiring sounds and stories to share with the world. From these positive people, perhaps we might learn and remember something important and unexpected.
