A short documentary about how Yoichiro Tateiwa (Yoi), a Japanese journalist consistently explores ways to tell the truth by starting the first news non-profit in Japan where press freedom has deteriorated. Filming in the US and Japan, this documentary tries to capture Yoi's struggle, sacrifice, risk while fighting for truth, and examines both media freedom issue in Japan and nonprofit journalism ecosystem by interviews with Charles Lewis who created ICIJ and Center for Public Integrity, the second largest news nonprofit in the US, as well as Yoi's previous colleagues at NHK and current staff at iAsia.Shots of Fukushima on the 6th anniversary of the 2011 earthquake-nuclear disaster are also included in this film.
