An unforgettable journey back to the site of one of the fiercest battles of World War II, this film is the powerful and moving story of American and Japanese servicemen who came together 70 years later for a historic reunion in March 2015. This battlefield is the only former combat zone where men who once were enemies return as friends. Hosted by “Flags of Our Fathers” actor Ryan Phillippe.

Seventy years after the battle, survivors from both sides gather for a historic reunion.
