“Uncle Gunjiro's Girlfriend is the historic account of the marriage between Helen Gladys Emery, daughter of the Archdeacon of San Francisco’s Grace Cathedral and Gunjiro Aoki, descended from an ancient Samurai family in 1909. The union made headlines, provoked public outrage, death threats and the loss of citizenship. A story Aoki didn’t know existed until she went looking for the source of her family's secret shame. It’s the tale of two distinguished families torn apart and reduced to poverty by prejudice and the impact of this marriage on their descendants today.”

Robert Hurwitt, San Francisco Chronicle

“Brenda Wong Aoki...actor and dancer of great technical skill ... fascinating and inspirational.”

Critics Choice Chicago Weekly Reader

“Bassist Mark Izu...cloaks his playing in supple tones of iron and silk.”
