Cornell-educated Taro Seki returns to Japan just as the war party gains control. He hopes to work for American engineer O'Hara, and falls for his secretary Tama, but he is drafted.

a classical propaganda movie. with usual ManicheAN speech, with good Americans and a sort of Japanes villain, with cruelty, happy end and a sad love story. it can be ridiculous , amusing, a document or, only, a pure nice film from an old period. in fact, it is little more. a map about perception of a nation, a exercise for few American actors to perform under make-up for becomes Japaneses, remember about a war traces and, sure, interesting comparison between box and judo. like many old films, it is a mirror for its period. naive, strange, not serious, full of pathetic scenes. but, in a special manner, realistic. because the crumbs of fiction grows - up on real earth.
