Northeastern Japan shelters a fragile treasure: oysters. This sanctuary has been almost wiped out by the tsunami which flooded 600kms of coastline, destroying numerous fishing ports.

This is the story of Shigeatsu Hatakeya, called the father of oysters, who has spent all his life trying to understand this very complex shellfish. He made a discovery that might well change our vision of how nature works. This is also the story of a fantastic international solidary move between oyster farmers following the disaster.

Oysters represent a millenary treasure that’s still holding many secrets.
