Kaede Room 210

Chris Hope is curious about his past, and his family’s archive has just been passed down to him. After celebrating his grandmother’s 80th birthday in Toronto, Chris takes his grandmother Nancy Okura on a trip back to the west coast locations of her internment experience. On their journey, Nancy’s story comes to life in vivid detail, leading grandmother and grandson through the Japanese-Canadian internment, across Canada and, unexpectedly, around the world.
