The film begins with images of the\n  \n   Issei\n  \n  period, moving on to images of the incarceration, and to various aspect of life in the concentration camps beginning with happier scenes before turning to harsher ones, including images of post-segregation\n  \n   Tule Lake\n  \n  and documents describing shooting victims at\n  \n   Manzanar\n  \n  and\n  \n   draft resistance\n  \n  . The film moves on to images connected to Nisei soldiers in camp and on the battlefield before ending with camp cemeteries and images of the sites today.
