In 1940, a decorated Japanese soldier returns home, now a quadruple amputee tortured by memories of war crimes. To honor country and Emperor, his wife takes on the grueling task of fulfilling his every need. A fascinating, deeply affecting indictment of right-wing militarism from veteran director Wakamatsu (whose earlier United Red Army opens May 27).
