In 2015, four years after the Tohoku earthquake, those in Futaba, Yamanashi remain in shelters and worry over losing an ancestral tradition known as Bon Uta. In the midst of this, they learn that Japanese immigrants brought over the Bon Odori to Hawaii, and–more than 100 years later–it remains a beloved tradition called Fukushima Ondo. With hope renewed, the townsfolk of Futaba travel to Maui to perform Bon Uta in this 3-year undertaking by Directer Nakae Yuji, whose research projects the performing arts of Futaba alongside music associated with the Hawaiin bond.
