The 442nd was a segregated US Army unit composed of Japanese Americans led by white officers. This small unit of 3,500 men in the field was awarded the most decorations for its size and length of service in the history of the US Army:

 

- 21 Medals of Honor

 

- over 500 Silver Stars

 

- over 9,000 Purple Hearts

 

The film has over 20 Nisei veterans telling their personal stories of serving in WW2 and the bittersweet return home to America.
