Product Description:

Based on David Guterson's best-selling novel, this is the story of a Japanese-American who must stand trial for the murder of a man with whom he's had a lifelong grudge. Ishmael Chambers (Ethan Hawke) is a reporter who has information that could potentially prove the defendant's innocence, but complications arise when he discovers that the man's wife (Youki Kudoh) was his first love. The two were forced to separate after the bombing of Pearl Harbor, but their reunion has Chambers confused about which choice he should make. Gorgeous photography highlights this romantic drama with a political edge.

Plot Synopsis:

From the director of SHINE comes this multi-layered drama of love, betrayal, and forgiveness, based on the novel by David Guterson. In a small Pacific Northwest town in the 1950s, a Japanese-American man (Yune) is tried for the murder of a man based on a long-standing grudge. Reporter Ishmael Chambers (Hawke) may be able to prevent injustice from happening, but he and the man's wife (Kudoh) are childhood sweethearts who split apart when the Japanese community of the town was sent to internment camps after Pearl Harbor. Ishmael must balance his sense of betrayal and lost opportunity with the desire to do the right thing. Director Hicks uses a series of overlapping flashbacks to tell his story in a complex, fable-like manner, joined by magnificent cinematography and music.
