It's May 1945, the South Pacific, when an US American bomber, the Dragon Lady, has to hit water behind enemy lines, and the nine airmen have to abandon ship to try their luck on safety rafts. Help is on the way from the 4th Emergency Rescue Squadron, and ultimately the survivors are picked up by an amphibian plane. But during the rescue mission, the pilot of that plane has to give his life saving others ...


A documentary about one of the many acts of heroism during World War II, this movie takes an interesting approach as a documentary/feature hybrid that plays its action out in great (re-enacted) detail, not so much to add spectacle though but to make the danger and the fear of the situation palpable, which is why the camera instead of going for the scope of the situation usually stays close to the characters. And this serves really well in setting up the story the interviewees tell in detail, with also adding many details to frame the enactments in historical context. And the outcome is not only an interesting piece of history but also a true story that plays very much like a fascinating thriller, and above all a film that gets World War II not only in facts but also on an emotional level.
