Set in 1971 against the backdrop of the Vietnam War, Strawberry Fields tackles the minefield between cultural history and personal memory. After a visit from the ghost of her sister, rebellious 16-year-old Irene Kawai heads out west with her boyfriend in search of a better life. Meeting up with activist friends along the way, Irene unravels the history of a photo linked to her family’s past, learning her parents were incarcerated in a U.S. internment camp during World War II. She detours her road trip, heading to the site of the camp in Arizona on a determined quest for the truth that will set her free.
