Movie Info

A secret unit of the U.S. Army during World War II, the Military Intelligence Service (MIS) was almost comprised of Nisei, second generation Japanese American, military men who had pledged absolute allegiance to the United States at a time when most were facing social and political inequalities. This film will explore an untold chapter in Japanese American history and have the audience think about the values of "Peace". It describes how the MIS contributed to America's victory and to Japan's recovery after the World War II ended. This film is the third and final installment of the trilogy centered on Japanese American history during WWII, following "Toyo's Camera - Japanese American History during WWII" (2008) and "442: Live with Honor, Die with Dignity" (2010). -- (C) Official Site

  • An important documentary about little-known, vital Japanese-American efforts to win World War II succeeds in imparting the story, although marred by some clumsily obvious directorial choices.
