The population of Kuma Village was already shrinking before disaster struck in 2020. Torrential rains and flooding made the village uninhabitable, forcing residents to evacuate. As the community struggles to rebuild, it faces some key questions: Will reconstruction happen quickly enough? And with the region and the world experiencing record amounts of rain, will residents ever feel safe there again? We follow one village's efforts to cope with a difficult and potentially life-changing dilemma.
