Plot Summary:

Based on the eponymous novel by acclaimed writer Tetsuo Takashima ("Intruder"), "Midnight Eagle" is a gripping adventure story, directed by Izuru Narushima and set in the snowbound Northern Alps of Japan. The film stars renowned Japanese actor Takao Osawa as Yuji Nishizaki, a former war photographer who witnesses the crash of a U.S. bomber nicknamed "Midnight Eagle," and becomes involved in an international hunt for its secret pay load, a nuclear warhead that threatens to wipe out Japan's entire population. Yuko Takeuchi ("Ring") co-stars as Nishizaki's estranged sister-in-law, and a reporter following the case for a Tokyo magazine.
