They have never met each other. Some have never traveled beyond their native village. They all belong to statistically average families in their communities. Five girls and three boys - aged 8 to 16 -- living in coastal areas of India, Indonesia, Sri Lanka and Thailand. Each family was hit by the Asian Tsunami of December 2004. Some lost their loved ones; or their homes; or their belongings. Many found their livelihoods gone and families rendered destitute. As they cope with the many challenges of rebuilding their shattered lives and livelihoods, the Children of Tsunami tell us their personal stories of anguish and survival, courage and resilience. These testimonies are a mirror that reflects the long and arduous journey back to normalcy for millions of Asians affected by one of the worst natural disasters of all time. Along the way, we also probe what happened to the massive volume of donations the world pledged to help the survivors. TVE Asia Pacific commissioned locally based filmmakers in each country to keep revisiting these families every month for most of 2005. In this documentary, we compile the highlights and lowlights of our featured children - as well as their families and communities - in what was Asia's longest year. Their journey is far from over.
