The story of Louis Zamperini, overcoming his conflicts
- He competed in the 1936 Olympics
- Was claimed to be the fastest distant runner in the world
- Set a national high school record that held up for 20 years
Memorable quote that explained the theme- "Love replaced the hate I had for you."
Louis wrote this to one of the leaders at the military camp who was nicknamed "The Bird".
They were complete enemies, he also needed the closure to help him get through everything, so he wrote letters to the leaders apologizing.
