Determined to come to the U.S., which he viewed as a land of opportunity, Keisaburo rose from a farm laborer to a profitable rice farmer before World War II. But like all West Coast Japanese Americans, he was forcibly removed, and spent the war years in the <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/wiki/Amache_(Granada)\" title=\"Amache (Granada)\">Amache</a>, Colorado, concentration camp. Former Amache inmates Minoru Tonai, Jack Muro, and Nob Hashimoto recall the camp and their memories of Koda. Returning to Dos Palos after the war, he and his son Ed rebuilt the business. The video also notes Keisaburo's community leadership, noting his role in fighting for <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/wiki/Issei\" title=\"Issei\">Issei</a> citizenship and his first return trip to Japan after the war where he was given a hero's welcome in his hometown. (The video does not mention Koda's decades long fight to recoup wartime losses through the <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/wiki/Japanese_American_Evacuation_Claims_Act\" title=\"Japanese American Evacuation Claims Act\">Japanese American Evacuation Claims Act</a>.) The story then turns to Ross and the current operation of the farm, noting their turn to producing organic products and the problems brought on by California's continued drought through interviews with many employees and associates. We also meet Ross's Japan-born wife and his two young daughters.\n</p><p><i>Seed</i> is one of several films on Japanese American topics produced by Nitto Tire, U.S.A.
