Immediately after Emperor Hirohito's World War II surrender, General Douglas MacArthur (Tommy Lee Jones) suddenly finds himself the de facto ruler of a foreign nation. He challenges his expert on Japanese culture - General Bonner Fellers (Matthew Fox) - to provide evidence to decide if the Japanese Emperor, worshipped as a god by his people but accused of war crimes, should be punished or saved. As he ponders a decision he has mere days to make, Fellers reflects on his lost love with a Japanese exchange student (Eriko Hatsune). Inspired by true events, this unusual historic opus co-stars Toshiyuki Nishida and Masoyoshi Haneda.
