Storyline

Go For Broke - a 442 Origins Story, follows a group of University of Hawaii ROTC students during the tumultuous year after the attack on Pearl Harbor, as they navigate wartime Hawaii and fight discrimination. In the dark days following December 7th, these Americans of Japanese ancestry form the Varsity Victory Volunteers (VVV), fighting to defend their beloved Hawaii and get back their right to bear arms. The brave actions of these young men, their families, and the people who helped them, along with the perseverance of the original 100th Infantry Battalion draftees from Hawaii, directly led to the formation of the segregated all-Japanese fighting unit, the 442nd RCT - the most decorated combat unit in U.S. military history. Written by Cedar Grove Productions

Trivia

There's a character called "Chimpo." It means "penis" in Japanese slang. So, when the VVV are talking about seeing if the Ka Leo would print Chimpo's name in the newspaper, they were trying to insert a dick joke into the paper. See more »
