MIS Human Secret Weapon Written and directed by Junichi Suzuki.

A secret unit of the U.S. Army during World War II, the Military Intelligence Service (MIS) was mostly comprised of Nisei, second generation Japanese American, military men who had pledged absolute allegiance to the United States at a time when most were facing social and political inequalities. Braving the many prejudices brought against them, Nisei soldiers of MIS had to fight against Japan, their parents' homeland, and proved their patriotism to the country that had caged their families in the concentration camps.

Despite their contributions and achievements during the war, information regarding the MIS remained top secret and classified by the government until Executive Order 11652 was issued in 1972, which began the official process of declassifying documents of national security information and materials. This film explores how the MIS contributed to America's victory and to Japan's recovery after the World War II ended.
