SYNOPSIS

The extraordinary true story of WWII army medic Desmond Doss (Andrew Garfield), who, during the war’s bloodiest battle in Okinawa, miraculously saved 75 men without firing or carrying a gun. He was the only American soldier in WWII to fight on the front lines without a weapon, as he believed that while the war was justified, killing was nevertheless wrong. Doss single-handedly evacuated the wounded from behind enemy lines, braved fire while tending to soldiers and was wounded by a grenade and hit by snipers, going on to become the first conscientious objector awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor.
