On November 8, 2013, Nick and Chai lost their four children to Super Typhoon Yolanda in the Philippines. Four months later, they are attempting to build a meaningful life from what is left. Little by little, as we follow their daily routines and hear brief comments in voice-over, we gradually come to understand exactly what happened on that fateful day and just how great the impact has been on the couple. After marinating in their grief, they decide that they should rebuild. They figured that it’s what their children would have wanted them to do. They put all their energy into the reconstruction of a devastated society, helping to set up and implement programs for cultivating vegetables.
