Fencing The Forgotten (D)

When a down and out videographer in Hawaii is asked to film Korean War veterans providing their oral histories, he thinks it is a nuisance project that he would prefer to pass on. But as he is coping with alcoholism, is separated from his wife, and is dead broke, he has to accept the job. But as he hears the men’s stories and does further research on his own, he begins to grow passionate about the project, and then also decides to help the men in their attempt to construct a fence around their war memorial that has come  under disrepair. In so doing, he  finds his life is finally turning around. Writer: Eric Nemoto. Pages: 108.
