Synopsis: Along with the Battle Royale, Under The Flag Of The Rising Sun is one of Kinji Fukasaku's most personal works. Sachiko Hidari gives a towering performance as the war widow who returns year after year to the Ministry of Welfare, trying to clear the name of her disgraced husband: a sergeant court-martialed and executed for desertion at the end of the war. Seeking out four survivors from her husband's garrison, she pursues the truth and uncovers a Rashomon-like mystery conveyed with all the impact and rage one would expect from Kinji Fukasaku.

Alternate Title(s): Under the Flag of the Rising Sun, Under the Fluttering Military Flag
