Two stories set decades apart.  Kyle in 1978 is new in town.  And he is bored.  He joins up with a few other boys and they start destroying property just for the fun of it.  They get their kicks from stealing and breaking up a construction site.  When they are caught, Kyle and one of the boys end up in jail.  The second story is a wordless story set in 1941.  A family of Japanese Americans are shipped off to an internment camp.  Life in camp is hard and the family changes in ways they didn't see coming.  These two stories come together and the two learn from each other.
