In 1942 the Canadian government ordered the uprooting of 22,000 men, women and children in one of the nation’s largest and cruelest dispossession and dispersals ever. A generation later, Japanese Canadians fought back – and won. Using rarely seen archival footage and interviews with members of the negotiation team including Roy Miki, Art Miki, Cassandra Kobayashi, Audrey Kobayashi, Maryka Omatsu, as well as Obasan author Joy Kogawa, Children of Redress calls on today’s generation to stand up for what is right.
