On March 11, 2011, Yasuo Takamatsu lost his wife in the tsunami that followed the Great East Japan earthquake. Since that fateful day, he has been diving in the sea every week in search for her. I Want To Go Home is the story of one man’s determination to reunite with his wife and fulfill her final wish.

A deep emotional connection to Takamatsu’s story sparked filmmaker Wesley Leon Aroozoo’s first foray into documentary filmmaking. There is a lyrical rhythm that emerges from his handheld approach, accompanying Takamatsu as he makes the perilous, desperate dives into the watery depths. With Aroozoo’s gentle direction, accompanied by Harry and Henry Zhuang’s gorgeously rendered animation, we see the delicate sadness and inexorable yearning that dwells with the loss of a loved one.
