In Sonoma, she comes across the story of the Enmanji Temple in Sebastopol. Its historic building was built for the 1933–34 Chicago World's Fair and subsequently moved to Sebastopol where it served as a community center prior to the war. With the forced removal and incarceration of the Japanese American community, the temple became a target of arsonists and vandals and suffered some damage. In reaction, a group of white churchgoers organize to stand guard at the temple and no further attacks take place. Most Japanese Americans from Sonoma County returned after camp and resumed their lives. Hoshino interviews one of the teenagers who was part of the organized efforts and uses old footage of another (since passed) talking about her actions. The film ends with footage of a contemporary mochitsuki at the temple and how Hoshino took inspiration from the story as she began her new life in Sonoma.\n</p>\n<p>\n <i>\n  Leap of Faith\n </i>\n was funded by a grant from the California Council for the Humanities and was also supported by the Sonoma County JACL and Enmanji Buddhist Temple. It was shown on local public television in May 2010.\n</p>\n<p>\n Filmmaker Hoshino made a prior film that referenced the Japanese American incarceration in the context of 9/11,\n <i>\n  <a class=\"encyc rg\" href=\"/wiki/Caught in Between: What to Call Home in Times of War (film)\" title=\"Caught in Between: What to Call Home in Times of War (film)\">\n   Caught in Between: What to Call Home in Times of War\n  </a>\n </i>\n (2004).\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/Relocation, Arkansas: Aftermath of Incarceration (film)\" title=\"Relocation, Arkansas: Aftermath of Incarceration (film)\">\n   Relocation, Arkansas: Aftermath of Incarceration\n  </a>\n </i>\n (2016);\n <i>\n  <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"https://encyclopedia.densho.org/wiki/Moving_Walls:_American_Nightmare_to_American_Dream_(film)\" title=\"Moving Walls: American Nightmare to American Dream (film)\">\n   Moving Walls: American Nightmare to American Dream\n  </a>\n </i>\n (2017);\n <i>\n  <a class=\"encyc rg\" href=\"/wiki/Gila River and Mama: The Ruth Mix Story (film)\" title=\"Gila River and Mama: The Ruth Mix Story (film)\">\n   Gila River and Mama: The Ruth Mix Story\n  </a>\n </i>\n (2011)\n</p>\n<!-- \nNewPP limit report\nCPU time usage: 0.100 seconds\nReal time usage: 0.103 seconds\nPreprocessor visited node count: 346/1000000\nPreprocessor generated node count: 2575/1000000\nPost‐expand include size: 6996/2097152 bytes\nTemplate argument size: 1728/2097152 bytes\nHighest expansion depth: 3/40\nExpensive parser function count: 0/100\nExtLoops count: 0/100\n-->\n<!-- Saved in parser cache with key mediawiki:pcache:idhash:1985-0!*!0!*!*!5!* and timestamp 20180309150926 and revision id 28402\n -->\n",
