Product Overview

During the late 1930s, with the Second World War feverishly brewing, Jack McGurn (Dennis Quaid), a struggling union activist working as a film projectionist in a San Francisco movie theater, falls in love with beautiful Japanese-American Lily Kawamura (Tamlyn Tomita). Against Lily's father's wishes (and contrary to the California law of the time forbidding intermarriage), Jack and Lily wed and have a child. Their marriage flourishes until the Japanese bomb Pearl Harbor and America enters World War II. Japanese Americans--including Lily and her family--are herded into concentration camps by the thousands. Jack is drafted into the army but is prepared to risk life and limb to see his family again.The predominantly Japanese American cast paints a stunning collective portrait of the toll taken by the rash and racist internment of Japanese-Americans during the war. Director Alan Parker, as he did in MISSISSIPPI BURNING, uses his acute, convincing storytelling abilities to take a brave look at a dark episode in America's past.System Requirements:Running Time: 135 MinFormat: DVD MOVIE
