The Gate: A Pacific Journey

 

The huge earthquake and tsunami that struck northeastern Japan six years ago swept vast amounts of debris across the Pacific. Some objects reached the shore of Oregon, including the crossbeams from the gates of a Shinto shrine.

The film tells the story of how this homecoming formed bonds of friendships between people living an ocean apart.
