Director/actor/performance artist Lane Nishikawa's feature-length directorial debut, ONLY THE BRAVE, tells the true story of Japanese Americans (and one Korean American) in the 100th Battalion/442nd Regimental Combat Team who served in the U.S. military during World War II.

The story opens with the 100th/442nd combat team advancing on a French town bordering the Vosges Forest, well fortified with a German company and numerous snipers, left behind to slow the progress of the American troops. Within hours the town is secured with few casualties. Before the regiment can regroup, word reaches it about the battalion from the 141st. Their orders are to break through and secure the "Lost Battalion." For four days the Japanese American regiment faces entrenched Nazi forces. Finally, the 100th/442nd combat team charges through German lines and reaches its objective, but at a tremendous cost; they saved more than 200 soldiers of the "Lost Battalion" but suffered 800 casualties.

Using flashbacks, Nishikawa tells the story of the diverse backgrounds of the Japanese Americans who volunteered to fight while some of their parents and siblings were held in internment camps, and giving a good sense of these men as not only soldiers, but as fathers, husbands, boyfriends and brothers. ONLY THE BRAVE stars the Nishikiawa as Sgt. Takata along with Jason Scott Lee and Mark Dacascos, as well as "Karate Kid II" stars Pat Morita, Tamlyn Tomita and Yuji Okumoto.

ONLY THE BRAVE is an exploration of how the overwhelming specter of death affects a man who just wants to do the right thing.

Director & Actor Lane Nishikawa is scheduled to attend.
