Chiune Sugihara, Japan's consul to Lithuania, risked his career, life, and family to save the lives of thousands of Jewish refugees during the Holocaust. In 1940 Sugihara spent up to sixteen hours a day issuing visas, until Soviet-occupied Lithuania forced the final shutdown of the country's last remaining consulates. This historical documentary is a tribute to his life and work.
