Sam has to deal with racism in 1950's America when he leaps into the body of a young U.S. Navy sailor, Charlie Mackenzie, who returns home to his small mid-western town with his new Japanese bride, Machiko. Not surprisingly, there is a World War II veteran who hates the Japanese and blames the war for ruining his promising professional baseball career. The biggest opposition however comes from his own mother who simply will not accept the young woman into her home. As Sam learns, Charlie's mother is still grieving from the loss of her daughter over a year ago and feels terrible guilt at never having reconciled with her before her death. Written by
