    • Synopsis
    • From Tokyo to Guam, Taiwan, Singapore, and throughout the earthquake-ravaged Tohoku region. Every aspect of their precisely organized but frantic activity is revealed as we follow their hectic schedule for 365 days! This documentary follows them as they breathlessly keep running about on stage, covered in sweat. We’ll see what they see, feel what they feel, and listen to their heartfelt prayers, as they make the most of the present.
      We’ll go below the surface to find out who they really are. After the disaster of March 11, 2011, what do the girls think about and what do they really want to do? We’ll see the special contribution they can make now, both as ‘Idol’ performers and as individual human beings… Our documentary cameras reveal countless insights as the girls try to hold on to the things that are important, as we search for the meaning of their tears.
