Yut Ho, a beautiful young refugee, came to LA and fell in love, only to be drawn into a showdown between two of Chinatown's most notorious gangsters. Before long, the entire city was caught up in a life or death struggle where old-world values of kinship, honor and loyalty clashed with new-world issues of race, sex, and identity. The ensuing conflict would threaten the lives of Yut Ho and all the denizens of Chinatown– and would change the face of Los Angeles forever. Show less

It is often told that the Japanese American Incarceration undermined family structures and loosened the bond between first generation Issei and their Nisei children. This is largely true, but the camp experience affected each family and person differently. In Alice’s mom’s case, her parents were strict and forbade her to date. Despite the parental decree, Jane had a secret boyfriend. Though the couple could not acknowledge their romance in public, there was one space where they were able to show affection. After meals, they took to their jobs washing dishes in the mess hall and, standing beside each other, held hands beneath the soapy water. This moment helped weave the rest of this song which is simply about longing for love both within and beyond the barbed wire. Show less
