It is 1941 and although Canada is at war, life on Mayne Island, British Columbia is peaceful for young sweethearts Chidori Setoguchi and Hayden Pierce. When Japan bombs Pearl Harbor and bigoted paranoia surges, everything changes. Chidori's family and thousands of other Japanese Canadians are stripped of all their property and belongings and forced into internment camps. Hayden is left with only one option -- join the air force as a spitfire pilot and help bring an end to the war. Will Hayden have enough strength to survive being shot down and taken prisoner of war? And will he and Chidori be reunited if he ever does make it home?
