Storyline

In the winter of 1941, the attack on Pearl Harbor throws the United States into a turmoil of paranoia and racism. In the midst of it all, young Bette Warren (Aimee Teegarden) is uprooted to Los Angeles with her father, and injured war hero, and her older brother, a young upstart lost in the shadows of his father's military past. Bette quickly finds solace in Scott, the orphaned grandson of her Japanese neighbor. With all the innocence of youth the pair share a common dream of a world untouched by war and hatred. What they could not dream of, is the awful reality that awaits them upon discovery of their friendship, and the inevitable pain of innocence lost. Written by Anonymous

Great Short Film
15 March 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

the movie was great overall with good acting, good art, and especially benefited from a great music score. I liked the other films of this director Tom Oesch as well Very talented and ambitious even in short films and can teach a thing or two to other directors who make short films The acting was superb especially from a girl a young girl The music fits the picture very well and creates a certain mood. Looking forward to check the composer's other works. I give this movie a 10 because it has heart and feels and looks a lot bigger than what it is I watched a lot of short films and this one is definitely one of the best ones i have seen.
