Ralph comforts Jimmy's family, whom we see selling their possessions and packing up in preparation for their forcible exclusion. He later gets letters from Jimmy from Manzanar. Learning that the last group of Japanese Americans is to be removed, Ralph goes to see Art and his sister Ruby (Brittany Ishibashi) off at the train station. Going onto the train to return something to Art, he decides to stay on the train. At Manzanar, Ralph reunites with his Nisei friends and befriends a <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/wiki/Toyo_Miyatake\" title=\"Toyo Miyatake\">Toyo Miyatake</a>-like <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/wiki/Issei\" title=\"Issei\">Issei</a> photographer. After learning of Jimmy's brother Henry's death as a U.S. solider in Italy, Ralph debates serving in the military with an increasingly embittered Jimmy. The film concludes forty-five years later, when Ralph and Ruby return to Manzanar for a <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/wiki/Camp_pilgrimages\" title=\"Camp pilgrimages\">pilgrimage</a>. \n</p><p>The 33-minute film was written and directed by John Esaki and produced by Amy Kato for <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/wiki/National_Coalition_for_Redress/Reparations\" title=\"National Coalition for Redress/Reparations\">Nikkei for Civil Rights and Redress</a> (NCRR) and Visual Communications. Some camp and pilgrimage scenes were filmed at the Manzanar National Historic Site. The scenes of the removal and of camp life were also augmented by historic footage, both government and inmate derived. The film was funded in part by grants from the <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/wiki/Civil_Liberties_Public_Education_Fund\" title=\"Civil Liberties Public Education Fund\">Civil Liberties Public Education Fund</a>, the <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/wiki/California_Civil_Liberties_Public_Education_Program\" title=\"California Civil Liberties Public Education Program\">California Civil Liberties Public Education Program</a>, and Japanese American Community Services. The film premiered at the Los Angeles Day of Remembrance on February 21, 2004.\n</p>\n<div id=\"authorByline\"><b>Authored by <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/wiki/Brian_Niiya\" title=\"Brian Niiya\">Brian Niiya</a></b></div>\n<div id=\"citationAuthor\" style=\"display:none;\">Niiya, Brian</div>\n<p>Might also like <i><a class=\"encyc rg\" href=\"/wiki/Days_of_Waiting_(film)\" title=\"Days of Waiting (film)\">Days of Waiting: The Life and Art of Estelle Ishigo</a></i> (1990); <i><a class=\"encyc rg\" href=\"/wiki/Day_of_Independence_(film)\" title=\"Day of Independence (film)\">Day of Independence</a></i> (2003); <i><a class=\"encyc rg\" href=\"/wiki/The_Music_Man_of_Manzanar_(film)\" title=\"The Music Man of Manzanar (film)\">The Music Man of Manzanar</a></i> (2005)\n</p>\n<div id=\"RelatedArticlesDisplay\">\n<div class=\"section\" id=\"Related_Articles\"><h2><span class=\"mw-headline\" id=\"Related_Articles\">Related Articles</span></h2><div class=\"section_content\">\n<p>\n</p>\n<div id=\"RelatedArticlesSectionDisplay\">\n<div class=\"section\" id=\"\"><h3><span class=\"mw-headline\" id=\"\"></span></h3><div class=\"section_content\">\n<p>\n</p>\n<ul><li> <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/wiki/Dramatic_films/videos_on_incarceration\" title=\"Dramatic films/videos on incarceration\">Dramatic films/videos on incarceration</a></li></ul>\n</div></div></div>\n</div></div></div>\n<div class=\"section\" id=\"For_More_Information\"><h2><span class=\"mw-headline\" id=\"For_More_Information\">For More Information</span></h2><div class=\"section_content\">\n<p>\"Stand Up for Justice\" on the Nikkei for Civil Rights and Redress website, <a class=\"external free offsite\" href=\"http://www.ncrr-la.org/news/stand_up_for_justice.html\" rel=\"nofollow\">http://www.ncrr-la.org/news/stand_up_for_justice.html</a>.\n</p>\n<!-- \nNewPP limit report\nCPU time usage: 0.128 seconds\nReal time usage: 0.132 seconds\nPreprocessor visited node count: 403/1000000\nPreprocessor generated node count: 2697/1000000\nPost‚Äźexpand include size: 10002/2097152 bytes\nTemplate argument size: 2327/2097152 bytes\nHighest expansion depth: 4/40\nExpensive parser function count: 0/100\nExtLoops count: 0/100\n-->\n<!-- Saved in parser cache with key mediawiki:pcache:idhash:2251-0!*!0!!*!5!* and timestamp 20180309151451 and revision id 28615\n -->\n</div></div><div class=\"toplink\"><a href=\"#top\"><i class=\"icon-chevron-up\"></i> Top</a></div></body></html>",
