Based on a true story, Justice at War is a unique and interactive drama that brings to life a critical moment in U.S. history.

Audiences are sworn in as Supreme Court justices to hear Mitsuye Endo’s challenge to her yearslong incarceration at an internment camp by the U.S. government during World War II. As an American citizen of Japanese descent, Mitsuye declares her detention unconstitutional and takes her argument all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court in a compelling case that asks audiences to hear testimony, question witnesses, and reflect on crucial questions about national security, government responsibility, and the administration of justice.

Both enlightening and inspiring, Justice at War is a real-life account of how one young woman defended the rights of millions.
