This movie was a real eye-opener to the racism and hysteria caused by Pearl Harbor. I was unaware of Japanese internments detrimental effects on Japanese-American culture until this film. Forced into internment camps, some of which were on Native American "reserved" lands, they were striped of all of their livelihood. Japanese-Americans lives were utterly disrupted shredding the fibers of their economic, social, and family support structures and mind you without any credible evidence of Japanese-American espionage. Not until some 50 years later under the Regan administration were efforts taken by the U.S. government to right this wrong. This film is tactfully directed and portrays an untold story of diminished Japanese-American culture in the U.S.
