In the opening scene shows a World War II US Air Corps B-24 Liberator bomber flying somewhere over the Pacific Ocean. Then mechanical difficulties caused the plane to crash into. The only three to survive are Louie, Phil, and Mac.
On the 33rd day Mac dies. On the 47th day Louie and Phil are taken to a P.O.W. camp ( Prisoner of war).
The camp in Tokyo, where Louie is sent, is headed by Watanabe nicknamed the "Bird", who treats him very cruelly.

In January 1998, Luis ran a leg of the Olympic Torch relay for the Winter Olympic Games in Nagano, Japan.
Louie died on July 2, 2014 at age 97
I really like this movie, for me it’s one of the greatest movies.
The story of survival is very emotional, it’s about how to be strong and fight for life and freedom even if it’s hard to do.
It’s about anyone who becomes unbroken in any situation.
Luis is a real hero, he was very strong and brave person, his story is inspiring.
