About Half Kenneth

"In a country divided, only together can they survive."

Kenneth Handa is an adolescent Japanese-American, and has been imprisoned in the Manzanar War Relocation Camp three years since the start of the war. After his father passes away in the camp, Ken decides to escape to find his Caucasian mother. Things become complicated, however, when Ken’s little brother Jo follows him into the back of the camp infirmary truck heading into town (Ken’s means of escape). On their journey home, the boys manage to make a surprising discovery—one they did not expect.

Directed by Ken Ochiai
Starring Avery Dennis, Hunter Dennis, Sab Shimono, and Chris Tashima
