“4-4-43” is a quintessential American tale of fate, faith, sacrifice, heroism, teamwork and inspirational triumph over long odds. It is one of the most significant POW stories in American history, and most certainly the “Greatest Story of the War in the Pacific.”
On April 4, 1943, ten American prisoners-of-war and two Filipino convicts broke out of an escape-proof Imperial Japanese Army prison plantation in the Philippines. The secret that they carried out with them would shock the world. This was recognized as the “Greatest Story of the War in the Pacific” by the U.S. War Department in 1944. The account of this escape and the atrocities these men experienced at the hands of their fanatic captors is a story that has been lost to history. Now the entire uncensored true story has been brought to the screen.
