Fallen City  

Survivors of a 2008 earthquake in China that leveled the town of Beichuan and killed 90,000 people share their experiences, which include grieving for lost loved ones. A new Beichuan is built near the old, and residents make the move, but the transition to a new life is anything but smooth for some, as echoes from the past prove to be very powerful. A boy whose father died in the earthquake, for example, has difficulties accepting his mother's new husband, a widower, and eventually runs away.
