Tells the story of the Japanese American veterans that served as Nisei (second generation Japanese American) soldiers of the 442nd Regimental Combat Team. A second Nisei unit, the secret Military Intelligence Service, worked with Allied units in the Pacific, hastening the end of the war with Japan. This documentary explores what this segregation of Japanese Americans means about America and our willingness to accept new citizens who may not look or talk or worship as we do. Features interviews with Gordon Bakken, Richard Fleming and Loren M. Ishii.
