Synopsis

Even now, the people of Kinmen, Taiwan call a certain Japanese person "Ikusagami," or "warrior god." The real name of this person is Lieutenant General Hiroshi Nemoto and in October of 2009, for the first time, the government of Taiwan officially recognized his contribution to the defense of Taiwan during the Chinese Civil War. Why did he gamble his life by joining the Kuomintang troops? When the curtain is lifted on a heavily veiled history, the life of this Japanese man who lived through the war comes to light.
