Belief and conviction. Basically, those two things go hand in hand and pretty much define what makes up our personality. When going through life you will find many situations which might make you change your beliefs. Be it friends, family or other things that can make it hard for you to live by the convictions you might hold close to your heart. But how far would you go to stand by your beliefs. What if it might cost you your life in the end? It would take a very strong person to keep the faith in what you deem to be right.

Hacksaw Ridge tells the true story of Desmond Doss, an American WWII combat medic. When Desmond decides to enlist in the army, against the wishes of his soon to be the wife, Dorothy. Doss still goes ahead anyway, and soon finds himself in Bootcamp. Everything is going right until weapons training begins. When offered a rifle for practice, Desmond refuses to take the gun. At first, his commanding officer thinks he is making a joke, but Doss is deadly serious. From that point on, his squadmates think of him as a coward, and the army brass is trying their best to get him to drop out of the army. However, Desmond keeps standing by his convictions to never fire a single bullet, and to finish his training to become a medic in order to save people. When the war eventually takes him and his squad to Japan, the horrors of war will soon become a reality. But Desmond is determined to prove that you don’t need a bullet to become a hero…
