With the entire globe still in shock following World War II, U.S. Gen. Douglas MacArthur (Tommy Lee Jones) and his aide Gen. Bonner Fellers (Matthew Fox) arrive in a devastated Japan on a sensitive mission to determine whether beloved Japanese emperor Hirohito should be tried and executed for war crimes in this historical drama from director Peter Webber (Girl With a Pearl Earring, Hannibal Rising). During his investigation, Gen. Fellers experiences an emotional reunion with his long-lost lover Aya (Eriko Hatsune), a former Japanese exchange student who taught him about her nation's culture and customs. When Aya goes missing over the course of his inquiry, he embarks on an arduous quest to find her that not only opens his eyes to the destruction that has befallen the once-proud country, but also helps to inform the monumental decision he must make. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
