Synopsis

In the final days of the Korean War, a neutral cargo ship containing American soldiers captures a wounded enemy pilot. When command headquarters orders that the prisoner be executed, gung-ho Sgt. P.J. Briscoe, not wanting to tarnish his record as a good soldier, is ready to carry out the task. But Briscoe's underlings, Pvts. Dennison and Hackett, clash with their superior on the morally correct course to take.
