The third episode features a family who is living in Ishinomaki, Miyagi Prefecture. Ishinomaki is a town focused on the fishing industry. Mr. Kimura is a third generation owner of Oyster cultivation, but his house has been destroyed by the tsunami, and sadly on top of this, he lost his wife and his eldest son. The program will follow Mr. Kimura and his two daughters.
