Amache's America follows three-generations of Japanese-American women, centering around Angela. On the same day Angela finds out her grandmother has died, she also finds out she is pregnant. Conflicted over whether or not she actually wants to have children, she attends her grandmother's funeral and is unexpectedly gifted a box of old journals and audio recordings. Over the coming days and weeks, she immerses herself in them, learning about what it was like for her mother to marry a white man in the 1960's/70's and what it was like for her grandmother in the Japanese Internment camps. As she grapples with her own biracial identity, and what the cultural identity of her baby will be, she ultimately takes comfort and strength in the stories of the women in her life and rediscovers the importance of her family's rich heritage in this country.
