a film by Don Sellers, Lucy Ostrander, and Karen Matsumoto
The film tells the complex story of a Japanese immigrant family ripped apart by WWII. The Matsumoto family included 5 sons; two who fought for the Americans and three who fought for the Japanese. The eldest, Hiroshi (Roy), became a hero, fighting against the Japanese with Merrill's Marauders, an American guerrilla unit in Burma and became a hero when he used his Japanese language skills and military training to save his surrounded, starving battalion deep in the Burmese jungle. At the same time his parents and sisters were living in their family's ancestral home, Hiroshima. The story is told by Roy's daughter Karen as she discovers her fathers work in the military intelligence, kept a secret for 50 years.
