When Reason Sleeps

A chance meeting in Hiroshima, Japan, between the Mexican-American granddaughter of an IwoJima veteran and the son of an atomic bomb survivor, brings forth layers of a world forever at war, Whose history is real? If war is always seen through the eyes of the victor, what gets lost? And what do we have to know of the past not to repeat it? The final play of Romero's War Pentalogy.

    A powerful look at the nature of war and the eyes through which it is seen. How can we learn from the past and make sure it doesn't repeat again? Excellent.
