SYNOPSIS

Beginning in December 1941, 1 975 Canadians were imprisoned for nearly four years within Japanese POW camps in Hong Kong and Japan during the Second World War. Prisoners of war and survivors reflect on one of the longest incarcerations in WWII and how it affected their lives. In a broader sense, the film examines how time and history have created a ‘fence’ separating truth, memory, and forgiveness.
