Based on a true story, this fictionalized memoir is about a second generation Japanese-American girl growing up in a large family in California during the 1930's and 1940's. Set against the backdrop of the Depression and the internment of West Coast "persons of Japanese ancestry" during World War II, the story follows the protagonist's childhood interest in dance as it blossoms into a true calling.
