【About the documentary】

On March 11th, 2011, the Great East Japan Earthquake happened. In the face of a perceived unprecedented disaster and the massive casualties, everyone across Japan was bending their head down, wondering how Japan can be reconstructed. 
However, there was a man who kept looking up. He came up with the idea of a firework performance at the ten affected areas across the coast of East Japan. Although this performance was thought to be impossible to happen, it was the passion of one person and the local people’s zest for living that made this idea come true. 
Narrattion: Hitomi Kuroki, Music: Ryuichi Sakamoto, Co-making: the Japan Foundation
