									The dramatic screen adaption of Agnes Newton Keith's war-time prison memoir, this film chronicles the survival of Agnes (Claudette Colbert) and her son during their captivity in several Japanese prisoner-of-war camps from 1941 until the end of the war. Realistic and harrowing, the film was directed by Oscar nominee Jean Negulesco and features former Japanese silent screen star Sessue Hayakawa as the stern camp commandant Colonel Suga. "It will shock you, disturb you, tear your heart out," wrote the NY Times's Bosley Crowther. "But it will fill you fully with a great respect for a heroic soul."
