4/5. Seven months have passed since a devastating earthquake caused the tsunami that claimed the lives of 250,000 people in Asia. The coastal village of Lampuuk in Aceh, Indonesia, was close to the epicentre - only 1 in 7 of the 7,000 inhabitants survived the wave that obliterated the village.
Here we follow residents, including Abu Daud and his wife, student Anita and resourceful 11-year-old
Hendry, who've returned to the village determined to rebuild their lives despite a lack of help and against a backdrop of simmering military conflict in the region. Producer Ruhi Hamid : Exec producer Karen O'Connor
