The inspiring "American Dream" story about Shoji Tabuchi (4th right in photo), a 2020 National Fiddler Hall of Fame Inductee and world-renowned fiddler and entertainer, finally became available to fellow Americans outside his family and close friends at the 2021 Branson’s IMAX Military Film Festival.

Shoji Tabuchi was born in 1944, in Daishoji, Japan. His family relocated to Okayama, only 100 miles from Hiroshima. In the movie, he recounts thru his parents' experience, the devastation of the atomic bomb ... how he started playing the violin as a boy ... falling in love with playing country music while still in Japan ... then coming to the USA ... being able to entertain millions of fellow Americans with his violin expertise at his own theater in Branson, Missouri and elsewhere.

The film about Shoji Tabuchi was even produced by very proud American students at the College of the Ozarks, who are among the individuals in the associated photo with their names below.
