In this deeply affecting and personal pilgrimage, audiences join director Randall Okita as he searches for his grandfather, Yonezo. The journey follows generations of Okitas as they migrated from 1930s Hiroshima, homesteaded in Canada, and were forced into a Japanese internment camp. This is a moving exploration though the emotional geography of immigration and family archives in an effort to understand what it means to leave home and what may have brought us here today.
