 About the Movie:

This film is a story about Taylor Anderson and all the young people who travel the world trying to make a difference. Taylor was an extraordinary American who dedicated herself to teaching Japanese children, living her dream right up to the events of March 11, 2011. The earthquake and tsunami in Japan was a disaster that no one could have expected.

 From the Director: 

In my 21 years of working on Japan-based projects, I had witnessed earthquakes, but never the devastation of a tsunami.  Taylor's story came to me via the internet as stories from the areas that were affected began to be shared. I had met JET teachers in the course of my previous film work, so I knew the dedication and the hard work that goes into being an assistant English teacher, but there was something special about Taylor's story that touched me.  A passion and zest for the people of Ishinomaki where she was based, that not all teachers feel while in Japan. I began to seek a way to reach out to Taylor's family and share my interest. I am so humbled to have their consent to tell Taylor's story.
