This short documentary looks at a small town north of Tokyo that was hit by the March 11, 2011 tsunami, and what life is like for those affected a year later.


Though Iioka is in the prefecture Chiba which neighbors Tokyo, it's fate was overshadowed by northern areas which were hit much worse.


Like many areas affected, a large percentage of the population is elderly.


"Iioka" was a semi-finalist in the Student Academy Awards.
