During World War II, Gordon Hirabayashi, a student at University of Washington in Seattle, fights the US government's orders to forcibly remove and mass incarcerate all people of Japanese ancestry on the West Coast. As he struggles to reconcile his country's betrayal with his passionate belief in the US Constitution, Gordon begins a 50-year journey toward a greater understanding of America's triumphs--and a confrontation with its failures. "A gripping story about a shameful chapter of our history when the United States government looked at its own people and saw the enemy." - The New York Times
