By Alton Takiyama-Chung. With Musical Guest Mike Van Liew

What was it like to be sent to a concentration camp and then volunteer to fight for your country? What was it like to be in battle for the first time? What was it like to be asked to plan the invasion of the place where you grew up? What was it like to follow your conscience, knowing that by your actions, you will be disgraced and that you and your family could also face execution? What was it like to be saved from a German Concentration Camp by men who had families in American Concentration Camps?

Storyteller Alton Takiyama-Chung tells five stories that provide different perspectives of the Japanese and Japanese American experience of World War II. Includes "My Friend Ted (Ted Tanouye)", "Heroes", "Voices (Takejiro Higa)", "A Single Flame (Chiune Sugihara)", and "A Twice Saved Life (Solly Ganor)".

Running time: 90 min.
