Synopsis

David Bowie stars as a prisoner of war in this British drama. During World War Two, English soldier Jack Celliers (Bowie) arrives in a Japanese prisoner of war camp after an exhausting trial. Captain Yonnoi (Ryuichi Sakamato), the new camp commandant, becomes obsessed with breaking the new inmate's spirit, whilst interpreter Lieutenant Colonel Lawrence (Tom Conti) tries to mediate between them. As two different codes of honour clash, Yonnoi forces a confrontation with Celliers that brings them to the point of no return.
