    During World War II, the Japanese have a P.O.W. camp in Indochina on an island on the River Kwai. The primary purpose of this location is so the Japanese can use the labor of the P.O.W.s to construct a railway bridge over the river, the bridge which will be a vital link for the Japanese forces in the war. Suffering some abusive violence on the part of Saito, to prove his point, Nicholson then agrees to build the bridge over the River Kwai which becomes an expensive point of honour- for the British- but is accomplished and is an achievement of Western scientific methods- for the now deferential Saito.
