Kids from Iitate in Fukushima Prefecture and Salavan Province in Laos share stories of resilience. In 2011, Iitate's residents were forced to evacuate due to the nuclear disaster. The village remained empty for 6 years, but its residents were allowed to return in 2017. 2 students from Iitate Middle School make a video for their new Lao friends showcasing the revitalization of their village. The Lao kids reply with a video focusing on an issue that has haunted their country for over 50 years.
