LIVE DOGS & DEAD DRAGONS is the story of how a single act of compassion explodes into a lifetime of consequences. Based on the shattering story of 27,000 American POWs who were enslaved by Japanese corporations during W.W.II. Nagasaki, December 1942. When prison guard, Kino Nasaki witnesses Alvarado, an American POW, sacrificing his rations to save a starving comrade, little did he know how his own humanity would be inspired to action. It starts with simple things –- a hand-full of rice, lice-salt, X-ray film for a pinhole camera. Nasaki knows that friendship with an American is grounds for treason. To make matters worse, Colonel Hata, the camp commander is hell bent on working the POWS to death. In the final days of the war, high command in Tokyo issues an order for the "final disposition" of all POWS. On the day of their execution, instead of attending his betrothal in Nagasaki, Nasaki is punished with extra camp duties. The plutonium bomb explodes and Nagasaki is vaporized before his very eyes. Decades later, as Nasaki still grapples with the irony of his salvation, an unexpected twist in the tale reminds us how, amid a world gone mad, one act of kindness has the power to redeem the best of what makes us human. ___________________ "Uplifting and inspiring. Five stars!" "A powerful reminder of what makes us both human and inhuman." "A gargantuan epic told with literary flair." "H. H. Hurst tells a story of IMAX proportions!"
