This documentary tells the true World War II story of Stanley Hayami, a talented young teenager caught between his dreams of becoming an artist and his duty to his country. Based on Stanley’s diary and letters archived at the Japanese American National Museum, this coming-of-age tale chronicles Stanley’s life behind barbed wire and as a member of the 442nd Regimental Combat Team. The film captures this young man’s humor and imagination through endearing cartoons and witty observations that provide a firsthand look at the indignity of incarceration and the tragedy of war.

Q&A with filmmaker and family to follow 3PM screening.
