     Director Statement

It maybe hard to believe, but I recall reading the Japanese soldier’s story in 1972 when I was 8. and then cried when I learned about the Taiwanese soldier’s death when I was 15. I cried because I imagine how said it would be going back to a family that no longer wanted me. So now, I finally got great cast to work with me so I can share the story with you.
