"Banding Together -- An Isolated Village's Fight for Survival"
- Baba-Nakayama is a village in Miyagi Prefecture that was devastated by the Great East Japan Earthquake. The village was isolated after the earthquake and tsunami destroyed the road access to the outside world. With little access to the necessary aid and support, the 200 residents have joined together to rebuild their village and their lives. They first restored the road and repaired a damaged car to look for relief supplies. They even began building temporary houses by themselves. However, to do all this, support from the outside was indispensable. The villagers launched a website to appeal to the nation for help. This is the record of people in an isolated village working as one to overcome the obstacles they encountered day after day.
