The film shows the experiences of the Wakatuski family in Manzanar and their life afterward. Manzanar was the one square mile camp, opened in 1942 in response to the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. More than 11,000 Americans of Japanese ancestry and their immigrant parents were forced to occupy Manzanar and other camps for the duration of the war.
