Synopsis
Maj. Jack 'Strafer' Celliers finds himself an interpreter in a Japanese prison camp. The warden thinks that any man who surrenders instead of fighting to the death is a coward and treats the prisoners accordingly. When Celliers tries to see things from the Japanese point of view, he is branded a traitor by his own men. With Ryûichi Sakamoto and Tom Conti.
