Barry Rosenbush, the Emmy-winning producer behind the High School Musical phenomenon, delves once again deep into the heart of America with this heartfelt family drama set against the true story of a community in crisis in a World War II Japanese-American internment camp. Their loyalties questioned, their freedom suspended and their lives interrupted, numerous American families of Japanese descent were forced to live in internment camps. Unshakeable in their patriotism, they turned to the most American of sports -- baseball -- as an escape from their hardship.]]>
The movie was well done and I also enjoyed the interviews with the actors, researchers and director of the film.

This movie would be great to show Junior and Senior high school students as a teaching tool about a very important part of our history.Published 1 month ago by Patton
