How would you survive a war and save men without a weapon? Portrayed by Andrew Garfield, Hacksaw Ridge is the true-to-life story of Desmond Doss. He is a World War II veteran who saved 75 of his fellow soldiers during the Battle of Okinawa without firing anyone. Due to his religious beliefs, he never carried a gun amidst the war because he believes that killing was never right. Desmond Doss was the first conscientious objector who received the Congressional Medal of Honor.

Hacksaw Ridge is in cinemas nationwide since February 22.
