The 90-minute documentary brings the audience close up and personal into the life of the 77-year-old Japanese American pop culture icon George Takei and his husband Brad. Taking us from the early set backs and stigma of being a Japanese American, ushered with his family into an American internment camp after the bombing of Pearl Harbor, the story of Takei's life unfolds under the direction of his snappy humorous wit and distinctive voice. Covering his diverse roles, playing Sulu on the ever popular science fiction series Star Trek, as well as other screen appearances, and outlining his work as a social justice activist, the biographical sketch of Takei's life is sure to reach audiences everywhere.
