A Story Of Love Bestowed, Across The Span Of 60 Years….
Based on the best-selling novel “The Eternal Zero”, the film tells the story of Kyuzo Miyabe, a “Zero” Fighter pilot who died in a lot minute Kamikaze mission in the final days of World War II.
Kentaro Saeki (Haruma Miura) has failed his bar exam again. Unsure of his way in life, he then learns at his grandmother’s funeral that his grandfather he thought of as a blood relative was none of the sort. His real grandfather, Kyuzo Miyabe (Junichi Okada), perished at the end of the World War II in last minute Kamikaze mission. Kentaro embarks on a search for th eidentity of his real grandfather. However, his visits to war veteran colleagues of his grandfather yield only the grim report that he was the biggest coward in the whole navy. It appears that despite being a matchless pilot, he was more focused on making it home than taking part in combat. His motivation turns out to have been the singular promise he made to his wife Matsuno (Mao Inoue) to return home to the family at any cost. The big mystery is then why such a man would volunteer for a Kamikaze mission?
