There is no more powerful example of discipline to the death than this story of a Japanese soldier from World War II for whom surrender was not an option – even long after the war was over. A hero, an idiot or a madman? This film wisely leaves it up to the viewer to decide.
Towards the end of World War II, young Japanese Hiroo Onoda is sent with a handful of other soldiers to an island in the Philippines to defend it against the Americans.
