The characters appear to be composites, since much specific information—such as where exactly they lived and which concentration camps they went to—is omitted. The characters reminisce about their lives and sometimes read letters to each other over a wide range of still photographs from both private and public sources. None of the actors appear on camera.\n</p>\n<p>\n The hour-long film is divided into eight sections. \"Coming to America: Hiroshima, circa 1920\" begins with the Issei women talking about their migration to the U.S. and their early life there, while \"Growing Up Through the Teens: Mainland and Hawaiian Style\" brings in the perspective of their sons and the contrast of growing up Japanese American in Hawai'i versus the continental U.S. \"The Day of Infamy\"  explores the impact of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, while \"Removal\" focuses on the mass removal and incarceration of West Coast Japanese Americans. From there, the film turns to the military story. \"The 100th Battalion Paving the Way\" focuses on Kenji, who becomes a member of the\n <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"https://encyclopedia.densho.org/wiki/100th_Infantry_Battalion\" title=\"100th Infantry Battalion\">\n  100th Infantry Battalion\n </a>\n and writes to his family from Camp McCoy, Wisconsin. \"The 442nd Regimental Combat Team\" focuses on Harry's experience, when he volunteers for the army from an unspecified concentration camp. The longest section of the film, \"Remember Pearl Harbor: September 2, 1943, North Africa,\" looks at the two cousins' experiences in battle in Europe, touching on the major campaigns the 100th and later the 442nd were involved in. Several individual stories are highlighted, including that of Joe Takata, Kiichi Koda,\n <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"https://encyclopedia.densho.org/wiki/Sadao_Munemori\" title=\"Sadao Munemori\">\n  Sadao Munemori\n </a>\n , and\n <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"https://encyclopedia.densho.org/wiki/Daniel_Inouye\" title=\"Daniel Inouye\">\n  Daniel Inouye\n </a>\n . A brief final section, \"Coming Home,\" touches on the different receptions returning soldiers faced in Hawai'i and on the continent. The film ends with an on-screen coda by Hawai'i State Senator Carol Fukunaga on the legacy of the 442nd.\n</p>\n<p>\n A Los Angeles based attorney at the time, Kinaga first delved into filmmaking with\n <i>\n  About Love\n </i>\n (1992), an hour-long docu-drama that looks at domestic violence in the Asian American community drawn in part from her own experience in prosecuting such cases. Encouraged by the response to\n <i>\n  About Love\n </i>\n , she pursued another personal story in\n <i>\n  442\n </i>\n , since her father was in the 442nd and her mother was in a concentration camp. The storyline was based on interviews with both Nisei veterans and those who experienced the incarceration.\n <sup class=\"reference\" id=\"cite_ref-ftnt_ref1_1-0\">\n  <a class=\"\" href=\"#cite_note-ftnt_ref1-1\">\n   [1]\n  </a>\n </sup>\n</p>\n<div id=\"authorByline\">\n <b>\n  Authored by\n  <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"https://encyclopedia.densho.org/wiki/Brian_Niiya\" title=\"Brian Niiya\">\n   Brian Niiya\n  </a>\n  , Densho\n </b>\n</div>\n<div id=\"citationAuthor\" style=\"display:none;\">\n Niiya, Brian\n</div>\n<p>\n Might also like\n <i>\n  <a class=\"encyc rg\" href=\"/wiki/442: Live with Honor, Die with Dignity (film)\" title=\"442: Live with Honor, Die with Dignity (film)\">\n   442: Live with Honor, Die with Dignity\n  </a>\n </i>\n (2010);\n <i>\n  <a class=\"encyc rg\" href=\"/wiki/The Color of Honor: The Japanese American Soldier in WWII (film)\" title=\"The Color of Honor: The Japanese American Soldier in WWII (film)\">\n   The Color of Honor: The Japanese American Soldier in WWII\n  </a>\n </i>\n (1987);\n <i>\n  <a class=\"encyc rg\" href=\"/wiki/A Tradition of Honor (film)\" title=\"A Tradition of Honor (film)\">\n   A Tradition of Honor\n  </a>\n </i>\n (2003)\n</p>\n",
