Le 26 décembre, des villages déjà à moitié détruits par la guerre ont été complètement aplatis par le tsunami. Un malheur ne vient jamais seul, dit-on. Comment un pays peut-il se relever de tant de malheurs? Surtout que la guerre n'est pas vraiment finie, mais seulement suspendue ... Cette émission durera exceptionnellement 90 minutes, avec un reportage réalisé au Sri Lanka par Derek Vertongen et Jean-Pierre Gosselin, qui sont allés constater comment se passait la reconstruction du pays"--Boîtier
