The Unreturned Soldiers In Thailand

Imamura has better luck in Thailand, where he brings together three unreturned soldiers to discuss their experiences during the war and after.

The three men - a farmer named Fujita and two doctors: Toshida and Nakayama - have responded very differently to their circumstances. All three openly describe the war crimes they committed as part of the Japanese army, but fight bitterly over their different feelings about the Emperor and the choices each has made in their post-war lives.
