Allegiance

Allegiance





Inspired by the early life experiences of actor George Takei, Allegiance tells one family’s unheard story of intense patriotism during the Japanese American internment of World War II.


Story:

Sammy and Kei Kimura, Japanese American siblings living in California, hold opposing views of how best to counter the anti-Japanese sentiments sweeping America after the attack on Pearl Harbor. Sammy elects to join the 442nd Regimental Brigade as a sign of loyalty and solidarity, while Kei protests the unjust treatment of her race and calls for fairness. In a time of chaos and fear, both protagonists seek freedom and acceptance for themselves, their family, and their culture.
