  • Powerful social drama set in 1945 in which a stranger stumbles upon a sinister cover-up at a hamlet in the American West when he turns up in search of a Japanese-American farmer whose son has been awarded a posthumous war medal. His enquiries at the local hotel are met with hostility by the townspeople, and as he delves deeper into the mystery, they become positively threatening
