After growing up in a barber shop on Ogden's 25th Street, Wataru "Wat" Misaka shot his way to basketball stardom with the University of Utah. As a first-roud draft pick for the 1947 New York Knicks, Wat became the first nonwhite professional basketball player. Having been born in Utah, he was not subject to the 1942 internment orders. To the thousands of Japanese-Americans who were interned, this small-town son breaking race barriers became a symbol of hope. This documentary explores Wat's basketball career and shows rare footage from the Topaz internment camp.
