    • VANCOUVER ASAHI is inspired by true story.
      So many Asian immigrants have moved in to North America, Canada and Latin America since 1900.
      Besides of their dream, they only get a tough job. Often discriminated and unfair treatment.
      To keep their dignity, Japanese has formed a baseball team named ASAHI.
      But physically, it seems no chance to fight against Canadian team.
      They are so big and powerful.
      Against all odds, ASAHI trained themselves very hard, and tried to figure their own tactic to overcome physical gap.
      After several years of hard work, ASAHI found themselves a smart, united and strongest team in region.
      At the moment they reached to the top, WW2 occurred to send all Japanese immigrants to reservation camp and ASAHI members were not exception.
      Again, they have to find a way to survive through the camp.
