Still image from The Orchard

An old man, living high on a hill above the seaside store, remains agitated after an earthquake occurs. Unable to warn the people below of what he fears is coming next, he sets fire to his house in order to get their attention. When they rush to help him, the people are saved from a tidal wave the old man knew was coming. Based on a Japanese folktale. NOTE: Teacher review advised.
