Return to Sandakan examines the personal impact today of one of the most horrific events of the Pacific war - the tragedy of the Sandakan POW camp in North Borneo-on the lives of the survivors and their families and the families of those who died. It tells its story from many points of view-Australian, Japanese, Taiwanese and Malaysian-and looks at how such an event is remembered by individuals and as part of the collective memory of nations.
