A tale of personal loss, survival and hope, TSUNAMI, THE AFTERMATH follows a group of fictional characters whose lives are irrevocably transformed by the cataclysmic natural disaster. Among those whose stories are followed are: a young couple searching for their child; a Thai survivor who loses his family and tries to prevent developers from seizing the land his village is built on; an Englishwoman whose husband and son are missing; an ambitious reporter; a relief worker; an overwhelmed British official whose faith in the system is torn apart; and a leading Thai meteorologist, whose earlier report detailing the inevitability of a tsunami hitting the affected area was ignored.

Tsunami was an excellent film and did an excellent job recreating the events that took place, both before and after the Tsunami. The fictional lives portrayed were based on research done by HBO and interviews conducted. It covered many of the problems after the Tsunami such as medical evacuation, identification of bodies, many lives without homes, etc. What got me the most was their recreation of the Tsunami and the surroundings immediately after. My one criticism would be I would have liked to have seen more from the other affected countries that were harder hit like Sri Lanka and India. Other than that, Tsunami did a decent job with the actors and their parts as well as portraying this event.
