Desmond T. Doss’ formative years are shaped by complex familial relationships, particularly with his strict, army veteran father. After a violent outburst in which he badly hurts his sibling, Desmond’s religious convictions take on a more significant role in his life. Many years later, with American involvement in World War Two escalating, Desmond enlists in the US army as a medic, despite being a conscientious objector. Overcoming physical and mental tests of endurance from fellow soldiers and with his superiors questioning his patriotism, Desmond convinces a judge at a military tribunal of his principles and is allowed to serve. Thereafter, his unit is assigned to the Battle of Okinawa in which he displays extraordinary courage under the most extreme conditions – and refuses to fire a single shot – in this brutal, uncompromising war film.

What our educators say

"We are currently screening The Wizard of Oz, profound film that it is, and the last film Wall-E. It's been rewarding observing the KS1 6 year olds run the gamut of emotions from wonder to sadness to joy. "
