Shortly after the outbreak of war with Japan, citizens of Japanese ancestry living along the United States West Coast were ordered by the government to be rounded up and forcibly moved to internment camps across the country. They were forced to close their businesses and to leave their homes, taking with them only what they could carry. After World War II ended in 1945, interned Japanese Americans were released from the camps and returned to what was left of their former lives in California. This documentary probes the impact of incarceration on Japanese American businesspeople during World War II.
