During WWII, American Desmond T. Doss (Andrew Garfield) was an Army medic who refused to bear arms. In Okinawa, during the bloodiest battle of WWll, Desmond somehow single-handedly evacuated 75 men from behind enemy lines without firing or even carrying a gun.

He was the only American soldier in WWII to fight on the front lines without a weapon, and also became the first Conscientious Objector in American history to be awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor.
