Synopsis

In 1977 suburban Chicago, Kyle runs wild with his friends and learns to shoplift from the local convenience store. In 1941 Berkeley, the Himitsu family is forced to leave their home for a Japanese-American internment camp, and their teenage son must decide how to deal with his new life. But though these boys are growing up in wildly different places and times, their lives intersect in more ways than one, as they discover compassion, learn loyalty, and find renewal in the most surprising of places.


Kevin C. Pyle's evocative images bring to life a story of unlikely ties across space and generations.

I’m not convinced that the two stories ever dovetail into one another like Pyle clearly hoped
