Lost & Found explores the unlikely friendships that were forged on opposite sides of the world, in the wake of a massive natural disaster.
Imagine loosing everything – your home, your car entire villages washed away. Any semblance of a life that once was is gone.
On March 11, 2011 Japan was hit by the largest earthquake in its recorded history. The ensuing tsunami engulfed over 90 cities killing more then 18,000 people and leaving hundreds of thousands of families homeless. Millions of tons of debris was pulled into the Pacific Ocean that day and was left floating towards the Pacific North West. Entire homes, boats, the remnants of people’s lives lost to sea.
Then the unimaginable happened – just under one year later the first of the tsunami debris started washing ashore in North America and beachcombers did not let it go unnoticed.
People all across the Pacific North West started finding items washed ashore from the Japanese tsunami and became determined to trace them back to their original owners. LOST & FOUND follows the epic adventures of regular citizens who leave their small towns (some for the first time) to travel to Japan in hopes to reunite people with some small piece of their past.
People across 3 countries, 2 continents, who are separated by the largest body of water on earth are coming together to share in the memories, mourn the loses and find great joy in the reuniting of something once thought to be lost forever but has now been found.
