This is the story of Japanese-American painter Jimmy Mirikitani who is over 80 years old, and living in the streets of lower Manhattan. He was born in Sacramento and raised in Hiroshima. His artwork is exeptionally skilled and beautiful. He has an angry and defiant artistic personality. Much of that anger comes from being interned with other Japanese Americans during World War II. His internment took place in Tule Lake, California. The film shows Mirikitani as he attends a reunion of Japanese Americans who suffered from being locked away. This reunion transforms Jimmy Mirikitani into a forgiving and loving man.
