Frankie Hanesaka grows up in a floating house in the harbour of Port Alberni, BC. Then the war comes, and Frankie finds himself in a mountain internment camp, his small dreams of success dashed. After the war, Frankie moves to Toronto, where a patron teaches him how to turn effort into money, and a starry-eyed architect who teaches Frankie something harder to come by: the ability to dream big.
