Tsunami: Five Years On

The Boxing Day tsunami of 2004 was just the beginning, for those who survived. A massive earthquake caused a tidal wave that killed a quarter of a million people, but many millions more found their lives changed forever. This documentary tells the powerful story of how the survivors have tried to rebuild their lives.

In Thailand, a mother fights property developers to protect the memory of her drowned daughter. While in Indonesia, villagers now live under strict religious law in the belief that the catastrophe was a judgement from God.
