Jeanne is a child when the events of Pearl Harbor take place. We see her experience through the innocence of a child. Jeanne doesn't even know what Pearl Harbor is. We see life without the political or cultural lens of an adult. Jeanne relates her father burning the Japanese flag with a sense of urgency and confusion that only a child can relate. This captures the scene in a profound way.
