BEYOND ME, Somewhere Among

BEYOND ME June 2020

Set in west Tokyo during The Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami in 2011. Maya, 11, is finishing a school year, preparing for choir performances and going to cram school when the earthquake knocks Japan off its feet. She needs to find a way to ground herself through the aftershocks. Based on my experience of the aftershocks in west Tokyo.
