It's 1941, the Japanese have just attacked Pearl Harbor and immigrants are being sent to US internment camps. Amid this upheaval is Doctor Magdalena Russo, an Italian doctor on a passenger ship caught in the conflict. She would spend the next three years in internment camps. Her struggle to get back to her homeland takes her on a voyage of confinement, loneliness, fear and sometimes love.
