Kenta and the Big Wave (2013)
When the sirens sounded, Kenta ran to high ground and found his family, but his beloved soccer ball bounced and rolled away. When the water died down, Kenta and his family began rebuilding their lives. They searched for objects the ocean had snatched away. They found some, but they did not find the soccer ball.
On the other side of the world, a young boy playing on the beach found a soccer ball with writing he needed help to understand. Once he understood it, he knew just what to do.
Based on true stories of the 2011 tsunami in Japan, this is a gentle story of survival, recovery, endurance and the kindness of strangers.
