This is a true story about the life of a young girl in the Philippines. She survived the most horrifying experience and nightmare with her family during World War II under the Japanese occupation. As a teenager, she learned to speak the Japanese language, as well as her own dialect, the Pampango, Tagalog (the national language) and English. Japanese military police marched her with fixed bayonets. She saved the lives of a suspected guerilla and a university professor from the Japanese. She witnessed the dogfight in which an American flyer was shot down by the Japanese and brought in front of their house. Her worst nightmare was the arrival of the Japanese suicide squad, approximately one hundred pilots from Clark Field Air Base. Her ability to speak the Japanese language saved her, her family and the townspeople from being massacred.
