Eric Lomax was one of thousands of Allied prisoners of war forced to work on the construction of the Thai/Burma railway during WW2. His experiences, after the secret radio he built to bring news and hope to his colleagues was discovered, left him traumatised and shut off from the world. Years later, he met Patti, a beautiful woman, on a train and fell in love. Patti was determined to rid Eric of his demons. Discovering that the young Japanese officer who haunted her husband was still alive, she faced a terrible decision. Should Eric be given a chance to confront his tormentor? Would she stand by him, whatever he did?

An excellent portrayal of the character of Eric Lomax based on the personal experiences of his capture and torture by Japanese forces during WW2. Within this story one experiences the war of characters that rages. During this battle one is reminded of the agony experienced both physically and emotionally during this time and then culminates in the restoration and forgiveness of the past, bringing a peace and wholeness that only true forgiveness can bring.Would highly recommend this movie,
