This is a teaser from 43 min documentary.
70 years ago, these peaceful islands were faced with great danger. The surprise attack on Pearl Harbor by the Japanese air force led to the Pacific War. On the West Coast, the US government sent 120,000 people of Japanese ancestry into mass internment camps. The Japanese in Hawaii were also heading in this direction.
But there were people in Hawaii who fought against this tide .
There were FBI chief and a local policeman who tried to stop Japanese descendants from being interned.
A colonel who convinced the military governor not to obey orders from the government.
Because of their efforts, Japanese descendants in Hawaii had a very different experience from those on the mainland.
This is the story of the people who kept a culture of diversity alive, and laid the foundations for a new Hawaii.
