Memories of the Mountains

Synopsis

In 1941, Japan started the Pacific War and drafted Taiwanese indigenous youths to conduct guerilla warfare in the South Pacific. Many of them died in battle and never returned. Those who survived have grown old. Those Taiwanese that fought for Japan have yet to receive compensation from Japanese government. This is a historical account that is little known by the young people in Taiwan, but will never be forgotten by elderly Taiwanese.
