Based on the true story of Hiroo Onoda, the infamous Japanese guerrilla fighter who held out on a remote island in the Philippines and fought World War II for 30 YEARS after the war ended. Onoda’s war is a war of occupation, waged by a man-on-a-mission who became a man-out- of-time -- a modern myth.
