A sequel to RETURN TO TARAWA, this powerful documentary narrated by Ed Harris continues the story of World War II veteran Leon Cooper. As a Higgs Boat Commander, this naval officer landed assault troops on six Japanese island strongholds. To this day, he feels indebted to the thousands of U.S. soldiers who died in combat and were buried in unmarked graves—but are still listed as Missing in Action. To shine a light on the MIA issue and spur efforts to recover the remains of the fallen, the 94-year-old Cooper—at great risk to his own health—makes the arduous trip back to Manila. RETURN TO THE PHILIPPINES displays the courage and strength of this warrior as he takes on the heat, the insects and government bureaucracy.
