Bryan Brown stars as Captain Cooper, a tenacious prosecution lawyer horrified by the atrocious war-crimes trial he is working on. The case is based around the plight of 1,100 Australian soldiers taken prisoner in 1942 by the Japanese. By September 1945 only 300 of the men were still alive, and their testimonies of beatings, torture and degradation make up the basis of the prosecution case. George Takei (Mr Sulu from 'Star Trek') plays one of the 91 Japanese officers accused of the slaughter.
