Synopsis: February 1942. President Roosevelt signs Executive Order 9066, which authorizes the forced “relocation" of 120,000 ethnic Japanese from their homes and into incarceration camps throughout the U.S.
Koji Oshima is the proud owner of a small corner grocery store, but he must now abandon everything and report to an assembly center. His belongings, his business – everything must be sold or left behind, except what he can carry in one large duffel bag.

Up against a wall, Koji receives only one low-ball offer for his store, which he has no choice but to accept. The lone bright spot during this turmoil is the friendship Koji develops with a precocious nine-year-old girl. On the day of his departure, however, Koji is saddened to learn that even this friendship has been tainted by the larger forces of fear and wartime hysteria.

While Krishna is worshipped by many devotees, it is Radha who's at the center of his universe. He's the flirtatious, popular boy; she's the reasonable, beautiful girl. Their relationship is eternal - but when one of the other 'gopis' (cow herding girls) catches the eye of Krishna, Radha begins to question it all.
