In World War II British Columbia, Canada, a Japanese immigrant family has to endure the racist Canadian policy of being interned and their property confiscated as "enemy aliens". At the same time, a white Canadian family has to deal with their own feelings as they agree to be work as employees in this policy with Japanese being held in their area.Written by

Excellent historical perspective
A well told story that reminds us of a shameful period of Canadian history. I highly recommend this movie and if one has the chance to visit the Nisei Centre in New Denver, BC it would add to one's appreciation for this story. Interesting that 'Snow Falling on Cedars' was filmed partly in Greenwood, BC, an actual internment site during the war, which ironically is shown in the movie as the place that the Japanese-Americans are removed from.
