Tomikazu "Tomi" Nakaji and his best friend Billy Davis are playing baseball in a field near their homes in Hawaii when Japan launches a surprise attack on the U.S. at Pearl Harbor. As Tomi looks up at the sky and recognizes the blood-red sun emblem on the fighter planes, he knows that his life has changed forever. Torn between his love of all things american and the traditional ways of his parents and grampa, Tomi feels frightened and ashamed of his native land. Tomi's friendship with Billy is soon tested as prejudice divides their island community. He must find the courage to stand up to the neighborhood bully, Keet, while protecting his family's honor and its katana, a centuries-old samurai sword. Tomi is then forced to become the man of the family to care for his mother and sister, after his father is arrested and taken away to an internment camp.
Based on actual events. Under the blood-red sun is an unforgettable story of friendship, courage and survival.
