While rummaging through his father's garage, Screenwriter Brian A. Williams uncovered a forgotten piece of Australian history - inside an old shoebox he found transcripts of the largest war crime trial ever conducted, larger even than the famous Nuremberg trials; along with photos of human skulls and graves.
These transcripts unlocked the startling true story behind the wartime atrocities and controversial trials held in 1946 on the island of Ambon... the planned launching pad for the Japanese invasion of Australia.
The stories of the sadistic beatings, torture and mass murder sent shockwaves through the ensuing trials, culminating in an explosive showdown between Australian justice, American politics and the Japanese code of honour.
Academy Award winner Russell Crowe ("Gladiator") in his debut feature film, Bryan Brown ("Two Hands"), George Takei ("Star Trek"), Deborah Unger ("Hurricane") and John Polson ("Mission Impossible 2") head a brilliant cast in the movie that dramatically reveals for the first time the shattering secrets trapped within a BLOOD OATH.
