The film shows Japanese relocation centres in central British Columbia. There
are three main Japanese groups in the relocation camps: first, those who are
loyal to Japan and wish to return to that country after the war; then there is
a large percentage of Canadian-Japanese awaiting naturalization; and finally
there are those who have become Canadians, either by birth or by
naturalization. This archival film reflects the social and cultural values and
beliefs at the time of the production.
