After the attack on Pearl Harbor, Franklin D. Roosevelt's Executive Order 9066 violated the Constitution by imprisoning 120,000 Americans of Japanese ancestry in camps throughout the West for the duration of World War II. This documentary follows acclaimed animator Jimmy T. Murakami's emotional return to Tule Lake, where he spent part of his childhood along with 18,000 Japanese-American citizens who refused to swear allegiance to the U.S. Along the journey, we learn how the experience affected his development and outlook on life. Despite a successful film career, he felt betrayed by the American government and searched for a new home in Japan and Europe before settling permanently in Ireland. The film includes archival footage and Murakami's own paintings of life in Tule Lake.
