The incredible true story of Congressional Medal of Honour recipient Desmond Doss, the film follows the conscientious objector-turned-medic as he heads to the front line of World War II.
A committed pacifist, he refused to touch a gun or fire a bullet. His commanders were baffled, but eventually allowed him to serve on Okinawa, one of the war’s bloodiest battlefields. There a man they’d branded a coward would go above and beyond the call of duty, single-handedly saving the lives of 75 men.
An inspiring story of courage under fire and staying true to your beliefs. Starring Andrew Garfield as the heroic medic.
