[ Story ]

The Kuromori Kagura which has continued to this day on the Sanriku coast of Iwate Prefecture is the focus of this documentary. It captures both the kagura troupe who for over 340 years have continued performing the ritual dance at home after home no matter how many times tidal waves have come, as well as the people living on the coast after the Great East Japan Earthquake.
The kagura troupe, who narrowly escaped the tidal wave after the Great East Japan Earthquake struck, travel to the coast just as they had before. As divine emissaries, they travel throughout Sanriku where the gods and spirits still live and breathe, and provide repose for the souls of the deceased and encouragement for the living. Fishermen along the coast look out to sea as they once again set sail.
