Honor Was Their Code.
Sergeant Joe Enders
“You’re not gonna die. Nobody else is gonna die. We’re gonna make it out of this.”
Set during the Second World War in the Pacific region, this explosive movie enacts events centered around the true story of the Native American code talkers. There are many graphic battle scenes depicted.
Sergeant Joe Enders and another Marine are assigned to protect two code talkers, Navajo Marines who use their native language as radio code. But he also is told that he must protect the ‘code’ at all costs.
Enders has lost close friends and compatriots in battle and blames himself. He suffered both physical and emotional wounds, and now he tries to insulate himself from feeling by operating in a by-the-book manner and not allowing himself to get close to anyone. At first he is contemptuous of the codetalkers and their different ways, but gradually he grows to respect and appreciate them.
Against the background of the Battle of Saipan, when capture is near, Enders is forced to make a fateful decision, can he maintain his morality and still protect the code?
