Given only 30 minutes to convince them, Mizushima is unsuccessful – they would rather die with honor – and the British attack. Deeply affected by what has happened, he becomes a Buddhist monk, traveling the countryside burying the remains of Japanese soldiers. He is unable however to rejoin his brothers-in-arms.
