American Game, Japanese Rules
Program Number


Series Description

FRONTLINE is investigative journalism that questions, explains and changes our world. Since 1983, FRONTLINE has served as PBS's flagship public affairs series. Hailed upon its television broadcast debut as "the last best hope for broadcast documentaries," FRONTLINE's stature is reaffirmed each week through incisive documentaries covering the scope and complexity of the human experience.

Program Description

Intimate portrait of Americans living and working in Japan -- a baseball player, a television celebrity, and an American bride -- all confronting a society that looks western, but operates by a very different set of cultural rules.
