Stockton, California 1945. Three Japanese-American sisters return to their farm after years in an internment camp, but the once prosperous family finds it’s not easy to pick up the pieces of their former lives. As the details of their deceased father’s final arrangements emerge, the sisters must work together to keep their dreams alive.
Includes a post-play discussion with actor George Takei, playwright Philip Kan Gotanda, and director Tim Dang.
