A soldier has been in the Japanese military for the entirety of WWII, and in that time, his dedication to the army has never faltered.

In his fourth feature, Århus loyalist Nils Malmros continues his reminiscing fiction portryals of school days in the 1950s. You follow a class during its final years of grade school.
