The pride of Vancouver's Little Tokyo, in 1941, the Asahi baseball team won the Pacific Northwest Championship for the fifth year in a row. This win would mark the last time the team played together. Within months of the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbour, all Canadians of Japanese descent were interned, including members of the Asahi team. While interned, the players soon set up teams and played baseball with local townspeople, including the RCMP. In this moving documentary, award-winning producer Jeri Osborne weaves archival footage, dramatic re-enactments, and interviews with the remaining Asahi players, sharing their this remarkable story and tracing it to its present day.
