Wakako Yamauchi, Momo Nagano, and Mary Nomura were three innocent teenaged girls—American citizens living in Los Angeles in 1942—when they were sent to concentration camps in remote parts of the country. Behind guard towers and barbed wire their creative spirits remained undaunted—their lives fortified by art, music and literature.
Running time: 34 min.
Bonus track: Momo’s Excellent Adventure by Dan Kwong.
