Shaken by the Japanese earthquake, tsunami and nuclear disasters, a young woman returns home from NYC to Kasama, a rural artist community ninety miles south of the Fukushima nuclear reactors. Seeking answers about why her family fell apart, she turns the camera on her aging parents who abandoned her at age sixteen. Meditative moments at the pottery wheel punctuated by tense family conversations, sudden earthquakes, and radiation level readings, Kasamayaki reveals the fragility of life, and the imperfect nature of human relationships that sometimes hurt, but ultimately sustain us.
