On a Wind and a Prayer

2005 Rated NR 1hr

In late 1944, as World War II raged, the Japanese military released more than 9,000 fugo, or fire balloon, bombs into the Pacific jet stream, targeting North America. This incisive documentary investigates this little-known chapter in U.S. history. Through interviews, archival footage and CGI reconstructions, the film traces the story of the offensive -- and the subsequent media conspiracy to quell all information about the attack.
