An epic love story set in the last days before nations made the devastating leap from peace to world war, "Pearl Harbor", is a tale of heroism on both an epic scale and a profoundly personal one. Rafe McCawley and Danny Walker are two daring, young pilots in the U.S. Army Air Corps. The pair have grown up as close as brothers, doing everything together including learning to fly, a skill they gained in crop-dusting planes.
