Film is part documentary, part memoir and personal essay - weaving together facts, reflections and impressions about the meaning and lingering effects of the World War II internment on the Japanese-American community. It does not present the Japanese-Americans as model citizens in the camps, but as actively critical, organising protests, demanding their constitutional rights be returned. And it is the story of two sisters, both former internees, revisiting this absence in their family history.
