Plot – Spoilers:
A 4+ hour retelling of Unit 731 as covered in the Men Behind the Sun series. This is the Russian version of what happened at the secret Japanese research facility where experiments of every conceivable nature were allegedly carried out on humans.
Here the victims are Russians, and the narration is part documentary featuring an old Russian doctor Anatoly Protasov who hovered around Unit 731 as a medical student studying at a nearby university. Protasov lends an odd contradiction to the horrific nature of events at Unit 731 as his eyes often gleam while reminiscing.
The rest of Part 1 of the film has surreal fillers between the recreated cruelty that includes:
A fetus pulled out of a pregnant woman.
A terrified man forced to fuck an equally terrified woman as part of an STD experiment.
A man’s face melted away with phosphorus.
Live cockroach inserted into a pussy.
And so on…
