During WWII, Japanese American soldier of the 442nd Infantry Regiment fought not only the enemy but also prejudice and racial discrimination in the U.S. Theirs was an ironic situation, fighting for a country that had branded them as enemies.
But these young men bravely volunteered and proven their loyalty as patriotic Americans. By the end of the war, the 442nd had become one of the most decorated regiments for its size and length of service in the history of the U.S. military.
Written and directed by Junichi Suzuki.
