Eighty years ago, on the eve of war and incarceration, a Japanese American family buries a secret in their backyard garden. Three generations later, a clue is discovered, unearthing the trauma and truth of their past.

“No No Girl” has been screened for over 2,000 people in L.A. and Orange County since the fall. It premiered at the Japanese American National Museum in Little Tokyo to a sold-out crowd. Since then it was shown for a week at the Laemmle Theater in Glendale and had two big shows at Orange County Buddhist Church.

The cast includes newcomer Mika Dyo alongside Oscar winner Chris Tashima and a huge ensemble cast of Japanese American actors.
