To commemorate the 80th anniversary of the start of World War II, four celebrated actors explore their grandparents’ extraordinary wartime stories. Actor and peace campaigner Mark Rylance explores the extraordinary World War II story of his grandfather Osmond Skinner, who spent almost four years as a Japanese prisoner of war. Mark uncovers how Osmond, a banker for HSBC, bravely joined the Hong Kong Volunteer Defence Force with no military training and was thrown into a deadly battle to defend the island. Osmond was shot on Christmas Day and taken as a POW. In this moving and compelling film, Rylance’s views on war are tested as he uncovers the real and shocking story of how Osmond survived Hong Kong’s notorious POW camps
