Refusing to believe that the Second World War has ended, a Japanese officer takes his fight to the hills on a Philippine island.

December 1944: the Japanese Empire’s denouement draws near. On the Philippine island of Lubang, Japanese forces hold out on one of its final strongholds. Among them is Hiroo ONODA, a soldier fresh off the boat. Trained in the art of guerrilla warfare, Onoda is an intelligence officer tasked with sabotaging the island’s airstrip to hamper an American invasion. However, his superiors are more concerned with evading threats rather than facing them. Come the invasion, Onoda leads three men to the hills, with orders to stay and fight.
