Allegiance tells the story of the fictional Kimura family, whose lives are upended when they and 120,000 other Japanese-Americans are forced to leave their homes following the events at Pearl Harbor.  Sam Kimura seeks to prove his patriotism by fighting for his country in the war, but sister Kei fiercely protests the government's treatment of her people.   An uplifting testament to the power of the human spirit, Allegiance follows the Kimuras as they are forced to choose between duty and defiance, custom and change, family bonds and forbidden loves.
