Working an old missing child case, a police detective finds himself drawn to an orphanage. He suspects the caretaker of sexual improprieties with the minors there but cannot get them to talk. The key may be a neighborhood child.
As the Japanese surrender at the end of World War II, General Fellers is tasked with deciding if Emperor Hirohito will be hanged as a war criminal. Influencing his ruling is his quest to find Aya, an exchange student he met years earlier in the U.S.
I have been watching everything Stephen Moyer since I found him in True Blood, so I was interested in seeing this film for TV. As a woman, when I first saw this, I was disturbed, but the more I got involved in the story, I began to better understand how men communicate and how when things get out of hand, what can happen. There is something very primal about this story that resonates and shows the competitive nature of men and their relationships, in such things as sports, sex, drugs, etc. There is a constant competition between the five men with the conflict between the doctor and Stephen Moyer's character at the center. Each character has flaws and is presented in a very real way. I think this is an excellent film, extremely well written and one of Stephen Moyer's best performances. I rate it a 10!
