HACKSAW RIDGE is the extraordinary true story of Desmond Doss who, in Okinawa during one of the bloodiest battle of WWII, saved 75 men without firing or carrying a gun. He was the only American soldier in World War II to fight on the front lines without a weapon, as he believed that while the war was justified, killing was nevertheless wrong. Doss was the first conscientious objector to ever earn the Congressional Medal of Honor.
