Soul searching drama of one man's quest to be a Christian in early 20th century Japan
11 May 2000 | by (Detroit, Michigan, USA) – See all my reviews

Inspired by his Bible believing girlfriend who is bedridden the main character begins a quest to understand God and to be identified with Christ. Challenged by an old street preacher he tries to "love his neighbor as himself". The neighbor turns out to be a thieving co worker exiled to a remote station. Follow this stirring tale as the hero makes the ultimate sacrifice to show God's love.
