2007 A very good movie of the WW 2 Japanese internment within America and how the 120,000 Japanese Americans whom were interred adapted and made the best possible solution of a terrible situation. I really enjoyed this movie. Produced and directed by the SON of one of the actual fathers and his family from Los Angeles, CA. forced to Topaz Lake, Utah camp for 4 yrs.

SHAMEFULLY, the first primary causality of every war & mob hysteria is the defenseless civilian families who have nothing to do with the war.

Through out human history, for career politicians & mobsters with self-serving agenda, their neighbors are as EXPENDABLE as the enemy.

VERY SAD CIRCUMSTANCES BUT UPLIFTING STORY & INSPIRING FILM,,, The human spirit NEVER fails to make the best out of life, even when life becomes unbearable.
