Brief synopsis

    Vor 62 Jahren trafen die amerikanischen und japanischen Truppen auf Iwo Jima aufeinander. Jahrzehnte später fand man Hunderte von Briefen in der Erde der kargen Insel. Durch diese Briefe bekommen die Männer, die dort unter Führung ihres außergewöhnlichen Generals gekämpft haben, ein Gesicht, eine Stimme.
