USC Professor Oliver Mayer’s drama explores interactions between Japanese, Mexican and Filipino American farmers and farm workers in California during World War II. When Min Yamada, a Nisei farmer in Burbank and all other West Coast Japanese Americans are forcibly removed to inland concentration camps, Min sells his farm to his trusted foreman and friend, Genevevo, a Mexican American. Min’s wife remains behind, disguised as a Mexican laborer, to keep an eye on the farm, but when Min returns from incarceration three years later, he finds that much has changed.
