Synopsis With three Canadian government apologies to his parents and stepparents for past racist actions, filmmaker Mitch Miyagawa has the most apologized-to family in the country—maybe even the world.
But what do they mean, to his parents, his young children and to his country? A Sorry State chronicles his life-changing journey of discovery.
A 47-minute documentary, A Sorry State was produced by Up and Away Productions and Panacea Entertainment, and commissioned by TVO.
