This documentary focuses on the experiences of Roy Matsumoto, a Nisei who became a U.S. soldier and hero during World War II. He was born in California of Japanese parents, raised in Los Angeles and Japan, then, after returning to California, sent to the Jerome, Arkansas concentration camp as a result of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. He enlisted in the U.S. Army and volunteered, along with other Nisei soldiers, to go to Burma as part of the U.S. military unit known as Merrill's Marauders. There they fought the Japanese army even though many of them still had families in Japan.
