In Good Luck Soup, from the PBS series "America ReFramed," filmmaker Matthew Hashiguchi sets out on a journey to discover how the rest of his multi-racial family made sense of their lives and their Japanese American heritage. He sees a wide range of personal choices, some quite different from his own, as they tried to navigate between a new culture and their own backgrounds. 
Surprisingly, he finds a role model in his elderly Japanese grandmother, who was interned during World War II when America put Japanese Americans in prison camps out of fear they would be disloyal. "I lost 2-1/2 years of my life," she remembers, but says she has no time for bitterness. "I am Japanese but my mind is modern and US, freedom."
