Description by OLDIES.com:
In 1942, Fred Korematsu was an average 23-year-old California native working as a shipyard welder. But when he refused to obey Executive Order 9006, which sent 120,000 Americans of Japanese ancestry into internment camps, he became something extraordinary--a civil rights champion. Award-winning director Eric Paul Fournier follows Korematsu's story from the moment he first resisted confinement to the hard-won victory he finally achieved 39 years later, with the help of a new generation of Japanese-American activists seeking vindication and the assurance that such a terrible injustice would never occur again.
Fred Korematsu received a nasty wake-up call in 1942, when orders came down from President Franklin D. Roosevelt that he, and 120,000 Japanese-American citizens, were to be placed in internment camps. However, Korematsu resisted the orders, becoming a civil rights hero in the process. This film tells his remarkable tale.
