Public Broadcast Release: November 2005
In the turbulence of war, in a place where survival was just short of miraculous, the Aleuts of Alaska would redefine themselves -- and America. From indentured servitude and isolated internment camps, to Congress and the White House, this is the incredible story of the Aleuts' decades-long struggle for our nation's ideals.
Narrated by Martin Sheen and original music score by Grammy winner Mary Youngblood, the program draws compelling parallels to the present, as our country grapples with the challenging question of the balance between civil liberties and national security.
