A companion to Clint Eastwood's Flags of Our Fathers, this film presents the battle of Iwo Jima from the Japanese perspective and illuminates the themes of honor, sacrifice, and nationalism. In preparation for an impending American invasion, soldiers build an elaborate system of tunnels and caves on Mount Suribachi. Already weak, sick, and disorganized by the time the Americans arrive, some soliders fight to the death, some chose to kill themselves, and some survive.
