The interview is about Tatsuo and Kimiyo 'Kim' Sakauye (nee Yamamoto), and switches between their narratives. Kim talks about growing up in Victoria, going to Japanese school and involvement in the United Church. Tatsuo talks about childhood in Tofino, with a focus on fishing and preparing Japanese food and sake. He tells a story about his brother driving his boat towards the area that the government kept all the confiscated boats, but went towards the U.S. and was shot at and forced to return back to Canadian waters. He talks about his sister being stranded in Japan when the war started. Both Tatsuo and Kim were sent to Hastings Park, (a story of Tatsuo escaping to ride rollercoasters). Kim was sent to Tashme and Tatsuo to Slocan, eventually moving to Montreal where the couple met, eventually moving to Toronto. The couple discusses their language skills, whether they would have stayed in BC if the war had not happened and redress. The interview closes with Tatsuo talking about his cancer diagnosis.
