Storyline

Allegiance illuminates one of American history's lesser known chapters as it tells the story of Sam Kimura, transported back nearly six decades to when his younger self and his sister Kei fought to stay connected to their heritage, their family and themselves after Japanese Americans were wrongfully imprisoned during World War II. An important story told with great resonance and intimacy, Allegiance explores the ties that bind us, the struggle to persevere and the overwhelming power of forgiveness and, most especially, love

A show that every American should see!
24 February 2017 | by viva_ifafaSee all my reviews

Allegiance tells the story of Japanese-Americans who were removed from their homes and taken to internment camps across the United States, simply because they looked like the people who had bombed Pearl Harbor. Fear and paranoia drove feelings in that time and led to an action that is now seen as shameful. I pray that cooler minds prevail nowadays, so that this atrocity is not repeated.
