I barely remember part of two dreams with the first dream starting like a film where the actor Tom Hanks was possibly narrating and/or was the main character, it was during the day, and the dream might have started in the air over water headed down toward a tiny island with one church-like building; and this dream took place during a war.
Tom Hanks was a soldier and was telling the story about one soldier who did something heroic during a war when he was alone holding off the enemy by himself, and his actions helped win the war or something like that; and Mr. Hanks was inspired by this soldier’s story and/or was re-creating this soldier’s story.
I think Mr. Hanks was the lone survivor of his unit and was on an important mission, and was being chased by the enemy; and so he fled to this tiny island and somehow I was in the dream at this point as a soldier as well.
We went inside the only building on the tiny island that looked a bit church-like and we found another soldier, Mr. Hanks told us about the story of the soldier who inspired him & about the situation/current war/his survival strategy, and he wanted us to do like that soldier had done and hold the island from the enemy as long as we could while he left the island to continue his mission; and so we were supposed to hold of the enemy/sacrifice ourselves long enough for him to complete his mission.
In the building were paintings of a man who I think was the soldier in Mr. Hanks story, and some of the paintings probably told his story in the form of images; I am not sure if I became Mr. Hanks at this point or if he left to continue his mission, either way it was just one soldier & I left alone at the building now, waiting for the enemy to attack.
