March 11 2011 Japan was hit by the largest earthquake in its recorded history. The ensuing tsunami engulfed over 90 cities killing over 18,000 people.
Millions of tons of debris was pulled into the Pacific and left floating out to sea.
One year later Beachcombers in North America started finding Japanese items washed ashore and were consumed with finding the owners. They packed their bags and traveled to Japan in hopes to reunite people with some small piece of their past.
The unlikeliest of friendships were forged in the wake of a massive natural disaster.
