Inspired by the true life experience of its star George Takei, Allegiance follows one family’s extraordinary journey in this untold American story.
Allegiance illuminates one of American history’s lesser known chapters as it tells the story of Sam Kimura (George Takei, Star Trek, “Heroes”), transported back nearly six decades to when his younger self (Telly Leung, Godspell, “Glee”) and his sister Kei (Tony Award-winner Lea Salonga, Miss Saigon, Mulan) fought to stay connected to their heritage, their family and themselves after Japanese Americans were wrongfully imprisoned during World War II. An important story told with great resonance and intimacy, Allegiance explores the ties that bind us, the struggle to persevere and the overwhelming power of forgiveness and, most especially, love.
