Abstract:

Tells the story of a young couple, Shizuko and Itaru Ina, who responded to the loss of their civil liberties by renouncing their American citizenship during their 4 1/2 year internment during World War II, who committed their hopes for their children's future to a better life in Japan. Based on personal documents that detail a daily accounting of life and private emotional upheaval during incarceration, separation and reunification. Interviews with other Japanese speaking former internees who ultimately sought refuge from their imprisonment by declaring their loyalty to Japan present disturbing disclosures of unjustified treatment and suffering.
