Synopsis: Jorge Ramirez is a thirteen-year-old migrant worker toiling in the sugar beet fields of North Dakota. Joe Jensen is the sixteen-year-old son of the landowner for whom Jorge works. The two boys come from backgrounds as different as night and day, but a love of baseball forges an unlikely friendship between them. Shortly after World War II erupts, Jorge runs away and lies about his age to join the Marines with Joe. Still only teenagers, they endure the grueling training that makes them soldiers. Together they endure the horrors of war until, on a tiny Pacific island called Iwo Jima, a moment of unbearable sacrifice changes their lives forever. Hero's Heart is a short but powerful work that explores the themes of friendship, honor and devotion.
