Description: CODE NAME: HIGH POCKETS is a true story of Claire Phillips, an American Mata Hari and the resistance movement during World War II in the Philippines. Claire Phillips was High Pockets, a code name she adapted for having the habit of stashing important notes and valuables inside her brassiere. She established an exclusive club in Manila called Tsubaki Club that became a hotbed of espionage against the Japanese forces. With the money she made out of th Japanese, she sent aid and supplies to the Bataan guerillas, to the POWs in Cabanatuan and other prison camps. Ms. Binkowski takes you into an exclusive nightclub in Manila for Japanese officers and affluent Japanese businessmen, during WWII, in Philippines. You travel into the horrific prison camps. You go to the foothills and mountains of Bataan, where the guerrillas hid, waiting for their moment to strike. You meet the spies in Manila who risked everything to smuggle food and medicine into those prison camps, and then descend into the smelly dungeons of Fort Santiago to hear their screams, as they are tortured by the Kempetai. You witness them being murdered, by decapitation, in the Chinese Cemetery. Then ... Liberation!
