T. Bright.\n</p>\n<p>\n Shot in black in white and set in Santa Anita, California, in 1942,\n <i>\n  Tsuru\n </i>\n begins as Ellis Fitzgerald (Nicole Starrett), a white nurse, drives down a desolate road to a remote cabin where Yoshio (Ken Takemoto) and Mariko (Takayo Fischer) Ikeda are hiding out. Ellis brings groceries and supplies and administers to Yoshio, whose persistent cough suggests tuberculosis. To thank her for her care, the Ikedas give Ellis origami cranes (tsuru). Meanwhile, MPs and FBI agents break into the Ikedas' home in search of them; one of the agents is James Fitzgerald, (Michael Tomsu) Ellis's husband. Later, at the Fitzgerald household, James wonders where Alice has been going. As the soldiers and FBI pick up other Japanese Americans in a truck to transport them to\n <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"https://encyclopedia.densho.org/wiki/Manzanar\" title=\"Manzanar\">\n  Manzanar\n </a>\n , James sees Ellis's truck by the side of the road and goes to investigate. When he finds Ellis and the Ikedas, he decides to let them be and starts to return to the truck. But his supervisor, Agent Wilson, comes to investigate and hears Yoshio's cough. He takes them away to be incarcerated. In the film's final scene, Mariko hangs origami cranes in her barracks at Manzanar in memory of Yoshio.\n</p>\n<p>\n Written and directed by Chris K. T. Bright,\n <i>\n  Tsuru\n </i>\n was made with the aid of $23,000 raised in 3-1/2 days on Kickstarter. Bright and his crew filmed\n <i>\n  Tsuru\n </i>\n over two weekends mostly at the Canyon Film Studio Film Location in the Santa Monica Mountains of Southern California. They shot the final scenes at the\n <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"https://encyclopedia.densho.org/wiki/Manzanar_National_Historic_Site\" title=\"Manzanar National Historic Site\">\n  Manzanar National Historic Site\n </a>\n .
