The [[TheEmperor Emperor's position in Japan]] has been seen as a god by the Japanese people for hundreds of years, and the current emperor Hirohito is no exception; this opinion does not falter even after the bombs which decimated Hiroshima and Nagasaki fell. General Douglas [=MacArthur=] (Jones) is sent to Japan to secure the Emperor's surrender, which begins with the arrest and detainment of 30 of the Emperor's top men. But this is just the beginning, as [=MacArthur=] assigns his subordinate General Bonner Fellers (Fox) to perform research and investigations into what should be the Emperor's fate; the famous General believes that the Japanese situation could become a powder keg if anything untoward were to happen to their beloved monarch, and Fellers is to verify that such would indeed happen, to justify pardoning the leader.
