At a fashionable dinner party in Hong Kong a pilot is coaxed into revealing details of a dream in which eight persons take off from Bangkok in a Dakota bound for Tokyo and crash in the Japanese mountains. Amongst those listening is Air Marshal Hardie who is due to fly to Tokyo the next day. Hardie initially dismisses the dream because he is scheduled to fly out in a Liberator, but as Hardie arrives at the airport he discovers that the Liberator has developed mechanical problems and has been replaced by a Dakota. When, just before the flight is due to depart, two soldiers board the plane making a complement of eight, Hardie fears that the Dream may be coming true and he is destined to die.

It gave me insight to things he has never been able to verbalize and to me, that is priceless. It is hard for the families of these soldiers because we don't (and unlike Jake) will really never be able to go and see first hand what our soldiers do and what life is really like for them over there. I think this movie gives the rest of us an invaluable glimpse into the life of the wonderful men and women serving our country.

The problem was Americans weren't in Burma in WW2. The British were in Burma in Ww2 not the Yanks. The British didn't get their due in Hollywood. They had a point.
