More than 120,000 Japanese Americans were imprisoned behind barbed wire
during World War II...

...over half were children.

The Children of the Camps documentary captures the experiences of six Americans of Japanese ancestry who were confined as innocent children to prison camps by the U.S. government during World War II. The film vividly portrays their personal journey to heal the deep wounds they suffered from this experience.
